TVLP STUDENT ENVIRONMENTAL PHOTOGRAPHER OF THE YEAR

THIS COMPETITION HAS NOW CLOSED.

Congratulations to the WINNER of the TVLP Student Environmental Photographer of the Year competition.

Winner: Aoife Brennan from The Langley Academy. Age: 17.

Aoife’s decision to capture this well-known brand in a stylised way, ‘littering’ the environment, was very relevant to the competition brief, especially given that Coca-Cola was named the world’s most polluting brand in a plastic waste audit. The photo demonstrates how much humans are impacting our planet, while also being an excellent photograph in its own right.

We had a lot of entries from across 7 of our schools so it was a difficult decision choosing from the shortlisted images. Four others stood out to our judges so we chose those as runners up. They are as follows:

Highly Commended: Deimante Montvilaite, The Langley Academy. Age: 18

Commended: Francesca White, St Mary’s School Ascot. Age: 17

Commended: Natalia Malczewska, St Joseph’s Catholic High School. Age: 13

Commended: Hayden Newell, The Windsor Boys’ School. Age: 14

Thank you to the judges from Rhubarb & Custard Photography, Salli (left, in the photo below), Rosie (right, in the photo below), and Kirsty. Rhubarb & Custard also donated the winning prize: a DSLR photography 1 day Workshop worth £125 www.rhubarbphotographycourses.com

All the shortlisted images will be on display at The Curve in Slough throughout December 2019 and January 2020. www.thecurveslough.com

TVLP LOGO DESIGN COMPETITION

THIS COMPETITION HAS NOW CLOSED.

Congratulations to the WINNER of the TVLP student logo design competition:

Haashim Bukhari from Slough & Eton Business & Enterprise College.

It was a difficult decision choosing from the shortlisted entries so we also chose two worthy runner up designs. They were created by:

Thomas Barry from Eton College, and Pey Ying Tsang from The Langley Academy.

Logo design can be challenging so what impressed us was that the finalists’ designs were all quite different and used disciplines which, as designers, we see all the time when tackling a brief. Overall, the standard of the students’ entries was very high.

Winner: Haashim Bukhari. We really liked the simplicity of this design – less is more after all – and especially the use of the abstract pattern to evoke water. But what nudged this entry slightly higher and made it the winner was that it is really current – it would really stand out in a noisy graphic environment and especially in social media – good design is strong communication after all, and Haashim really nails it!

Highly Commended: Pey Ying Tsang. We love the way that Pey has thought about concept here. Ideas and partnerships are key to what the Thames Valley Learning Partnership is all about so a visual device which represents this will always say more than a logo which just looks aesthetically pleasing but doesn’t actually say anything! Well done Pey.

Highly Commended: Thomas Barry. Again, another strong concept here – the River Thames device which weaves through the letters pulling the typography together in partnership is a cool and bold idea. And lower case is always a nice option when you want a logo to look understated and confident. Great work Thomas!

Thank you to the judges from Dunk Design, Duncan Gordon (Managing Director), Leigh Hammans (Client Services Director), and Chris Prior (Graphic Designer), all seen in the photo above www.dunkdesign.co.uk

Thank you also to Hobbycraft, Staines branch, for donating the competition prize (an arts hamper worth £70).
