Hat-trick of Competition Wins for TCAT Art Students

Hat-trick of Competition Wins for TCAT Art Students

| by Editor | Posted in Telford News, Telford Schools

Three art students from Telford College of Arts and Technology have won awards for their photographic work.

Seventeen-year-old pair Daniel Farmer, from Hollinswood and Kaydee-Marie Lowe, from Malinslee, were named North West Midlands champions in the Young Photographer Competition, run by Rotary.

The region covers more than 50 individual Rotary clubs across Shropshire, Staffordshire, and parts of the Black Country.

A third TCAT student, 16-year-old Megan Harper from Wellington, won the Ironbridge and The Wrekin round of the competition.

Daniel and Kaydee-Marie went forward to the Midlands finals, where Daniel picked up a commended certificate, and Kaydee-Marie finished third.

Daniel, a level two art student at TCAT, won the colour category in the North West Midlands finals for his mountain lake image, while fellow level two art student Kaydee-Marie’s winning entry was a black and white shot of a girl and her umbrella.

Megan, a level three art student, won the local Wrekin competition with her picture of a bride at a fairground.

Charlotte Lewis-Hampton, 17, from Hollinswood, Shannon Matthews, 17, from St Georges and 18-year-old Abbie Phillips from Wolverhampton also took part in the local competition.

TCAT art lecturer Anna Dowdall said: “This is wonderful news for our winning students, who are all keen to progress into a career with their photographic skills. It is a wonderful boost to their confidence.”

David Shelmerdine from the local Rotary branch visited the TCAT campus to present students with certificates from the Ironbridge and The Wrekin round of the competition.

Daniel, Charlotte, Kaydee-Marie, and Megan are all continuing their TCAT studies next year, progressing onto the next level course in the art and design department.

Daniel said: “It was such a pleasure to have my work chosen to go forward into the competition. It’s wonderful to think people have been looking at my photographs.

“This will be excellent on my CV, as I hope to build up my career and be a professional photographer.

“What’s great about TCAT’s art and design courses is that they are tailored around the sort of practical, creative skills which local employers are looking for, or to allow me to be self-employed.”

Megan added: “TCAT prepares students for work in a wide range of creative industries, from fine art to fashion and textiles, graphics, illustration, advertising, photography, and much more.”
