Hitchin schoolgirl snaps up photography award
A BUDDING schoolgirl photographer from Hitchin is the picture of success, after winning a national photography competition.
Stephanie Smith, 14, a year 10 student at Hitchin Girls’ School, won the Specialist Schools and Academies Trust national photography competition after producing five images around the theme ‘My School: Celebrating our Specialism in Action’.
Focussing on Science themes, she initially won the east region heat, snapping up an Olympus digital camera and the opportunity to work with a Ward-Hendry professional photographer.
From this, Stephanie made the finals and was announced one of the winners out of eight finalists at the end of November, winning �5,000 worth of photographic equipment for her school.
She was presented with her award by Mike Ward from Ward-Hendry photography last week, who congratulated her on her win.
