A student from Falmouth University has been selected for November’s Curator’s Choice winner of the ‘Fujifilm Student Awards’ in association with Metroprint.
Adam McGhee winning shot was chosen for its vivid colours and strong composition and was shot on Fujifilm Superia XTra 400 and depicts a woman working on an allotment over-looking the river Clyde in Glasgow.
Adam says: “I travelled to Glasgow to document how the urbanised cityscape has affected the social behaviour in the city, most noticeably within the Gorbals and Rutherglen districts.” He continued: “I chose to shoot my image using Fujifilm Superia XTra 400 film due to its richness of colour and the way the film reacts to over exposure, whilst using a Canon EOS Rebel 2000 with a Sigma Zoom 28-105mm 1:2.8-4 and HOYA UV Filter.”
The theme of this year’s competition is ‘The Colour Of…’ with students being asked to capture an image that lights up their world. To enter the competition, go to: www.fujifilmstudentawards.co.uk
The Fujifilm Student Awards is open to all UK students, even those who aren’t partaking on a photography-based course, and the winner will feature in an exhibition to be held in London next summer, as well receiving a professionally produced folio of prints and a one-to-one printing/consultancy session with one of Metroprint’s top printers and £200 worth of film from Fujifilm. The college or university that submits the most entries will win £200 worth of Fujifilm Professional film.
