The King’s Ely Photography Department – which is run by Head of Photography, Antonio Longo – have been winning awards in the ‘ILFORD PHOTO International Student Photographer of the Year Competition’ and ‘Beyond the Frame Photography Competition’ for five and four years running, respectively.

The school is proud to report that Elly Hakansson-Harvey, who is in Year 10, has been crowned the ‘International Runner Up’ in the 2022 ILFORD PHOTO competition, and that Freya Moss, who is in Year 12, has won a ‘Judge’s Choice Award’ in the 2022 Beyond the Frame contest.

Mr Longo said: "At King’s Ely, we have talented and creative pupils who delight in exploring visual arts through the lens, producing a range of imaginative and thought-provoking work using both traditional and modern photographic techniques.

"Both these photography competitions are a great way for our students to get involved in the national and international photography scene and showcase their work alongside other schools and colleges worldwide.

"Both Elly and Freya are talented photographers who deserve this recognition."
