    The open night at the school was a huge success. The room was overflowing with viewers impressed by the student exhibition, a total of 22 matted 6x9" photographs. The students matted their own prints. We had over 250 votes for the People's Choice Award and I presented a Student Award. The prizes were fantastic - a high resolution Sony digital photo frame and a Nikon point & shoot camera. I've attached a snapshot of their work here for you. The exhibition will remain at the school until 11th Nov 09 and then travel to local libraries.

    During the workshop, the students were given strict guidelines to only shoot 4 frames covering various genres, such as landscape, environmental portrait, abstract, self portrait, movement, etc... A total of only 27 frames over 9 weeks. They did extremely well, with just a plastic throwaway camera - and film!

    Hi Polyglot, I knew that would come up (fast). My choice of prizes are not open for debate (here on apug). It was a thoughtful, conscious choice though. Until students success rate improves digi is a good practice run. Save the art for when they are serious about creating something unique and Mum & Dad don't mind investing in their craft.

    Very nice work. Not that you were accepting criticism on your choice, but I think the prize was a fine one with good thought. Congratulations on the outcome.

    Oh I don't disagree with your choice of prizes at all and am sure the winners will get great value from them; I am largely a digital photographer myself. I just found the juxtaposition of the prizes with the process used to win the prizes interesting.

    Kudos for not only introducing the kids to photography, but getting them to the point where they've produced work of such quality. Not a trivial task.

    Thank you Chris and Plyglot. No offence taken at all. Better not say much since I just got back from a fantastic 40th birthday bash! Have a great night.

    Home run, Nicole! Great job on the whole project!

    I would LOVE to see these prints as more than thumbnails. Is there any chance that we can see them as individual scans or digisnapped?
