Our magazine Prep School recently revealed the winners of its Photographer of the Year 2012 competition – and we thought we would share those results on this blog.

We had almost 250 entries from dozens of prep and junior schools up and down the country, including a number of first-time entrants.

The high quality of the photographs ensured that the judging process was a tough one and the editor and design team were impressed with the range of subjects and imagination demonstrated by entrants.

After several days of deliberation, we finally settled on an entry by Sherali Sharifov, of Duke of Kent School in Ewhurst, Surrey. Sherali submitted two excellent photos, but we thought this image of a lively class reading session truly captured the essence of life in the classroom.

Our second-placed photo came from Molly D’Arcy Rice of Beaudesert Park School in Stroud, a nice example of a close-up portrait with a twist.

Evie Fanthom, from Piper’s Corner in High Wycombe, was chosen in third-place, with the Prep School team impressed with the depth in her photograph of three friends resting in the school grounds.

All three will receive digital cameras courtesy of John Catt Educational. Details of how to enter next year’s competition will feature in the Spring and Summer issues. Once again, thank you to all the schools and pupils who sent in entries and helped contribute to another wonderful competition.

Prep School’s latest issue was the 75th in its 25-year history. The magazine is published three times a year. Potential contributors can contact Michèle at editor@prepschoolmag.co.uk while advertisers can get in touch with Madeleine Anderson at manderson@johncatt.com.
