An A-level photography student at Grantham College might was shortlisted in a national competition and although she found out this week that she did not win she can still be proud.
Alice Caithness’s work was recognised by judges in the EEF ‘Made in Britain’ Photography Awards, which were announced at the House of Commons in London on Monday.
Her pictures were up for awards in the category for best photograph by a 14- to 19-year-old in the awards, which celebrate British design and manufacturing.
Anne-Marie Kerr, curriculum leader for art and design at Grantham College, said her student was very talented in using both composition and photographic skills to tell a story.
“We are all absolutely thrilled that Alice has been shortlisted in a national competition and has been given the opportunity to showcase her work in such a prestigious venue,” said Ms Kerr.
“She works incredibly hard and is very committed student. I am over the moon that her skills have been recognised.”
The subjects for Alice’s photographs were equipment at Grantham firm Vacu-lug Tyres, where her father, Craig, works as maintenance manager.
He said: “I am delighted about her achievement. Our company is one of Grantham’s oldest manufacturers and I am proud we are able to support the local college and Alice.”
