University Hill Fine Arts Department is thrilled to announce that seven of their students have won the Chester Fields "Our Image, Your Image" photography contest. Chosen from entrants in Grades 8 through 12 across Greater Vancouver, Rory Whyte, Natalie Godwin, Oraya Srim, David Smith, Rojina Sar Salari, Iris Hu and Celina Wang all won top prizes for their art.
Not only has this achievement earned these students an exhibition spot at the Presentation House Gallery in North Vancouver, but two of the students also took home monetary prizes. Godwin was awarded the grand prize of $500 and Wang was awarded a $250 prize.
"Having work exhibited is a major achievement for artists, so it is an even bigger achievement for them considering they haven't even graduated high school yet! I am so proud of them," says University Hill Secondary teacher Sarah Matthews.
The exhibition featuring "Our Image, Your Image" opened Friday, May 30, 2014 and ran through to Sunday, June 1, 2014.
