This year’s theme was “A Different Perspective” and was well supported by local schools and colleges. All entries were judged by professional photographer Chantal Storrs-Barbor and Carole  Head, local artist and Chairman of Frimley & Camberley Society of Arts. The portfolios  showed considerable technical skill and artistic ability and gave the judges much food for thought.  

The evening was well attended by parents, friends and teachers from all the participating schools.
