Central RSA Academies Trust – Photography Competition

We know how much you all love to take photos on phones, so we are running a weekly photography competition for the next few weeks.

There are prizes by age group for winning entries, and the winning entries will also be published in our Central RSA Academies Trust magazine, DesignEd, in a special ‘lockdown’ edition. We will also create an ‘exhibition’ of these, and other competitions we will run before the end of term (poetry, art, journal/diary entries).

There will be an overall Trust ‘gold award’ – prize £50 gift voucher, ‘silver award’ £25, ‘bronze award’ £10.

Week two – Illusion

Deadline Monday 22nd June – 3pm

An illusion is something that tricks us into seeing something differently than it actually exists. Photography is often used to make illusions. The challenge for this weeks competition is to create your own illusion. You can use objects, buildings, toys, mirrors or even the weather. Play with scale, angles, and close ups! There are no limits! Use your imagination and have lots of fun!

If you include a person, they will need to give permission for this, and if we want to publish it will require a form filling for their permission (or your parents if it is you)

All you have to do is submit your photograph to Amelia Horwood at info@centralrsacademies.co.uk via email by:

Monday 22nd June for your chance to win!

Parents and staff are invited to submit their own entries – no prizes but we will publish some of them in DesignEd and use them as part of our lockdown exhibition. Please make it clear if a parental entry in the submission with your child’s entry.
