Big Ben picture wins Harris Academy Merton student top prize
Students from Harris Academy Merton have scooped top prizes in the BT Athena Cup photography competition.
London school and college students aged 14 and over were invited to enter one of four categories: 'people', 'places', 'on the move' and 'working with the public', with winning entries to be used in British Telecom advertising.
Olivia Henry-Alleyne, 15, won the overall award for her photograph of Big Ben, with Harris Academy Merton students winning top prizes in three of the categories.
Winners were presented with canvas prints of their photographs and the Academy was honoured with the BT Athena trophy.
Leo Gilbert, Academy Principal, said: "Our students are bursting with creativity, so it is great to see this being recognised through such a prestigious award.
"This kind of public recognition of their talents will no doubt spur many other students on to demonstrate the enormous accomplishments they are capable of."
