Iris Hacker, 10, cracks the competition to win Gloucestershire Young Photographer of the Year
AN unusual picture of a cracked Cadbury creme egg with its soft centre pouring out has led to primary school pupil Iris Hacker, 10, winning the Gloucestershire Young Photographer of the Year competition.
The composition is called Police, Camera, Creme Egg and includes miniature figures of police officers plus a photographer and a man and a woman, who appears to be injured. It was picked from 300 entries.
Iris, who attends Thrupp Primary School, received a certificate and a prize during an awards ceremony in Cheltenham.
"It is really exciting to think that my photograph got chosen out of hundreds," said Iris, who had to take the photograph completely unaided.
The competition, now in its tenth year, was run by Cheltenham Camera Club in conjunction with Cheltenham Arts Council.
Winning entries were displayed at the camera club's recent exhibition held at All Saints Church in Cheltenham.
Photographs by Thrupp Primary School pupils Francesca Neale, eight, and Caitlin Wildgoose-Davis, 11, were also selected to be on show at the exhibition, which has now finished.
