On Friday the winners of the annual Photography Competition were announced. With so many outstanding submissions again this year, it was a very difficult decision for the judges to make.
Congratulations to the three winning entries!
Middle School Winner: Arnav
Japan’s Culture – I have chosen this picture because it shows Japan’s people and it’s culture. In Japanese culture the lamp symbolises light to help one spiritually in finding the way when faced with darkness (difficulties). That is why lamps are such a common feature in every Japanese temple.
Senior School Winner: Jasper (Jasper won last year in the Middle School category also!)
Light and Dark – My photo depicts the Nakesendo Highway cutting through a forest in Japan. The Emperor during Feudal Japan would be carried by his servants the near 600 km from Kyoto to Tokyo along this highway. This photo shows the forests around the trail that highway robbers used to hide in before attacking the Emperor and his convoy.
Staff Winner: Deb
Solace – After days of navigating through the city of Beijing – with every street, every train, every bus, every road, every restaurant, every monument and every temple swarming with thousands of citizens and tourists – I turned back for one last look through the tunnel to Tiananmen Square, and there was just one man standing guard into the Forbidden City. For a split second there was a sense of quiet and solace.
