Current student, William Ridgedon receives "highly commended" at the Focus on Society Competition in London
"I was delighted to have one of my photos selected to be in the exhibition. Being commended for my photography is very gratifying and for it to be hung in a London gallery was wonderful news. It’s a unique opportunity to find out other people’s views of my work and also to see the other winners’ photos when I visit the gallery."More than 600 14-18 year old students entered the competition, with over 900 photographs submitted. William's was one of the final 43 that were selected by a panel of judges, including Sophie Batterbury, Head of Pictures at The Independent newspaper.
