Photographs taken by youngsters aged 3 to 17 from across Craven are being showcased in a new exhibition at Skipton Town Hall.
More than 70 young people entered the Skipton Rotary Young Photographer Competition and their work under the theme 'Colours of Nature' is on display until 5th March in the upstairs gallery at the town hall.
Alongside the young people’s photography work, visitors will be able to see a selection of work by the competition judge, Juliet Klottrup - an award-winning artist combining photography and filmmaking, based in North Yorkshire. Her work explores themes of youth, community, rural living and the relationship we have with our landscape.
Danielle Daglan, Cultural Services Manager at Craven District Council, said: “The submissions to ‘Colours of Nature’ have been fantastic. We have enjoyed working with Skipton Rotary to bring this exhibition to the Gallery at the Town Hall. We are really happy to have such an exciting group of young photographers from Craven on display, to share with our visitors.
“We’ve had some lovely feedback from the young people who have taken part saying the competition has encouraged them to go out for walks, look carefully at nature and think about the pictures they take.”
Nicky Shoesmith, Vice President Skipton Rotary Club added: "The Skipton Rotary Youth Team have enjoyed running this competition and we think the exhibition really celebrates the wealth of young talent in Craven, and the vibrant nature we have in our area."
Entrant’s work and winners from each age category will be on display until 5th March 2022, upstairs in the gallery at Skipton Town Hall, Monday to Saturday from 9.30am to 4.30pm. Entry to the exhibition is free.
