HILLINGDON photography students with learning disabilities have been awarded for their work.
Four members of the Hillingdon Adult Education's photography courses have been awarded for their work in the Snap! Competition run by Mencap.
The four learners were currently studying on the City and Guilds photography and multimedia courses for people with learning disabilities.
Twenty learners have spent the last four weeks working on their entries for the competition where the prizes included top of the range digital camera equipment, cash and an exclusive exhibition at the Proud gallery in London.
Anthony Quinn was presented with the gold award, with Ken Reader winning the silver ward and both Les Hardy and Balraj Virdee announced as the bronze winners for the competition.
Other learners on the course were also awarded with cash prizes after finishing as runners-up in two other competitions. Debbie Esson finished in second place in a local competition run by the Ruislip Woods Association and Raj Dhunay finished second place in a national competition run by City and Guilds.
Hillingdon Adult Education photography tutor Jean-Marc Teychenne, who himself won two international photography awards last month, said: "It is an amazing achievement for the learners and the Adult Education service and I’m so proud of them.
"The competition was open to everyone; amateurs and professional photographers, and some of our learners had only started to use a camera last September."
