Students’ Artistic Endeavours Rewarded
Senior School Art students had success in two State competitions announced recently.
A number of Year 10 boys received accolades for their entries in the seventh annual City of Subiaco Photographic Awards. Abhi Sethi was awarded first prize for his photographic entry in the Subiaco Oval Centenary section and received a monetary prize of $250.
Angus Vaughan and Mitchell Dargie received highly commended for their entries in the Youth section while James Dernie and Cullan Grindlay also received highly commended for their Subiaco Oval Centenary photographs.
The photographic awards aim to promote creativity and artistic excellence by providing amateur and professional photographers with an opportunity to display their original and innovative photographs. The awards are open to all residents in the Perth metropolitan area aged six years and over.
In the area of graphic design, aspiring animators were asked to develop a two-minute film clip in stop-motion, Flash or 3D animation for this year’s Scitech Animation Film Festival.
The Year 9 team of Louis Crossing and Thomas Drake-Brockman, also known as Battleaxe Productions, received first prize in the Year 8-10 Stop Motion Animation category for their entry The French Fry Invasion (click HERE to download the film clip). The boys received a $250 voucher, sponsored by the Film and Television Institute, to share.
Their creation was screened in a spectacular showcase at the awards night, held at Horizon the Planetarium on 25 September. It is the second consecutive year Christ Church has won the category at the awards.
