SMMA Big Community Art Project 2016: Photography

20 July 2016

Our annual photography competition is open to pupils, parents and staff. There are cash prizes for each category of entry, but the real community part is the autumn exhibition when we get to look at all the entries and have a little insight into what others find interesting or captivating.

Closing Date

Entries must be submitted by Friday 30 September


Enter only one photograph
Black and white or colour
Take your picture with a camera or use the camera on another electronic device


You can either bring in a print in an envelope with your name and year group (year in September 2016) written clearly on it and give it to either the Primary or Secondary Reception

Or you can email your picture clearly stating your name and year group (year in September 2016)

There will be one overall winner (receiving £100) and winners from the Primary School and Key Stages 3, 4 and 5 of the Secondary School including The Courtyard (each receiving £50).  All submitted photographs will be shown in the Autumn Term exhibition.

The Big Community Art Project includes the Academy and The Courtyard from Reception to Year 13 and is an opportunity to share something creative together.  The themes are deliberately very broad, so we hope you will all join in by submitting a picture.
