The competition was entitled Reflections, and all images taken by the young photographers were on display at the exhibition.

Priory member Derek Stringer, one of the organisers said: “The level of interest is almost three times as great this year compared to last year with almost 90 images being submitted.

“The quality of the pictures which the young people have taken is extraordinary and shows great imagination as well as good camera skills.”

Prizes were awarded in junior 7-10, intermediate 11-13 and senior 14-17 categories.
