TheGallery, in association with Widening Participation and Preparation for HE, AUB, is delighted to present the regional heat of The National Young Photographer Competition for the third year running, awarded by Rotary International in Britain and Ireland (RIBI). 

The National Young Photographer Competition aims to encourage young people to experiment with photography. They can use digital or traditional methods to express their ideas through the medium of photography. This three-stage competition is designed to support and encourage the development of photographic skills.

Thousands of young people take part every year in RIBI’s youth competitions, which in most cases take the form of regional heats followed by a national final. The competition is open to students in full time education in three age categories:

Junior : Aged 7–10 years

Intermediate : Aged 11–13 years

Senior : Aged 14 –17 years

Photography is a skill and an ever popular art form. The aim of this competition is to produce photographs based this years theme of ‘Reflection’ in colour or black and white photographic, along with a description of the inspiration for their photographs.
