Well the last day of school was officially the first of May. It finished with a final show on the night of the 30th with friends and family celebrating all the work of the school. It began with an awards ceremony for best exhibition piece, best portfolio, best use of lighting, community spirit award and 2 bursaries were awarded. Also a trip to France was given to Magida El Kassis to attend a photo festival… She has the chance to meet people from new agencies, magazines and other people in the photographic industry. I was awarded the best portfolio for the Level 1 students. Shout outs to Andrew Carson, Whitney Lewis Smith, Catherine Levasseur – Terrien, Erin Molly Fitzpatrick, Jen Steward, Laurence Butet-Roch, Jason Michaels, and Matt Higgens who were all awarded for their achievements in photography during the course of the year.
