At the beginning of January I started a photography club in our local primary school. We have 82 children on roll and the club is open to children in years 4, 5 and 6. The first couple of weeks were manic with 22 children attending the club, over a quarter of the school roll! Things have settled down now and we have between 8 and 10 regular members and are really starting to see some talent showing through. Three children entered the Gloucestershire Young Photographer of the Year competition. In total there were over 550 entries, 240 of which were from primary school children, and although none of our children’s entries won this time, one was amongst the 50 selected to be shown as part of Cheltenham Camera Club’s annual exhibition, which was incidentally fantastic. We have our own internal club competitions every term, the current one on the theme of Easter, so the children will have plenty of practice at entering photography competitions by the time the next GYPotY comes round and hopefully we will be amongst the winners.
