Exhibition: The Focus Environment photography competition at the Museum of Scottish Lighthouses until April 6 2011
The Museum of Scottish Lighthouses in Aberdeenshire is currently hosting the Focus Environment, Chevron’s photography competition exhibition including some local winners from Fraserburgh.
An environmental photographic competition for secondary school pupils throughout Scotland, the competition encourages young people between the ages of 11-18 years old to demonstrate their awareness of the natural world around them.
Of the entries displayed, locals may recognise the names of Fraserburgh Academy pupils who won the plaudits including Jake Watson who won the Wildlife & Habits section with stunning image called Leaping into Spring.
Neil Mair gained second place in both the Nature’s Moods and My Environment categories for Storm Brewing and Knitted Corner, which captured the Kinnaird Kaleidoscope Knitting project at The Museum. The yearlong project decorated the net drying poles at Kinnaird Head with knitted lighthouses.
Other pupils Lucy Slater and Alan Henderson achieved the two Commended awards in the ‘My Environment’ category.
