Edinburgh College Photography students and alumni captured
the imagination of the judges at the country’s top competition for young
photographers, winning 18 awards in total.
Marta Drozdz, a BA student at the college’s Sighthill Campus,
won the big prize of Student Photographer of the Year for a portfolio of work
put together throughout her time at the college. She also won the Gold and
Bronze Awards in the Fashion category.
Marta said: “It is the highest accolade a photography student
could ever hope to achieve so it’s an incredible honour. There are so many
talented photographers on my course alone never mind the rest of Scotland.”
This is the ninth year in a row that Edinburgh College
students have returned from the competition with multiple awards. This year’s
prize haul included four gold first-places, three silver second-places, five
bronze third-places and six merits with HND1, HND2 and BA students
all picking awards.
