Moray schools get a cash boost from photo-happy pupils

Winning entrants in a Moray-wide photography competition are set to receive their prizes in a series of in-school presentations on Friday.

Dynamic Visions, a Moray project led by young people with an interest in photography, filming and the outdoors, teamed up with Asda in Elgin and MFR’s ‘Cash for Kids’ charity in organising the competition for school-age children.

Entries were invited under the ‘Year of Natural Scotland’ theme and attracted over 150 participants from almost every school in the region.

Winning entries came from Mosstowie and Hopeman primary schools, Elgin Academy and Buckie High School.

There were also prizes for entries from East End Primary and West End Primary schools.

Competition coordinator Michelle Gillibrand from Dynamic Visions said: “We were amazed at the number and quality of entries received.

“It made the judging process very challenging but also enjoyable to see the great young talent we have in Moray.”

As well as the individual prizes the school attended by each prize winner will receive a £300 cash prize from MFR Cash for Kids.
