HARLOW Council,the Gibberd Gallery, Harlow College and various other community members marked Interfaith Week with a photography competition.
College students in the first year of their photography A-level were asked to produce a series of images on the theme of ‘quiet reflection’. The best three photographs were selected at the Interfaith Week event at the Gibberd Gallery and are now on display at the Civic Centre.
The event was held to celebrate diversity within the town’s community and the photography competition was aimed at raising awareness among students of the importance of a society that values different faiths.
Lauren Hurley took the top spot in the competition with Sophie Bennett awarded second place.
Corrina Dunlea, Director of the Gibberd Gallery, said: “The students have done extremely well to prepare their fantastic images in a short space of time. The quality of their work made it easier for us to commend work and pick the winners.
“The partnership working between the college, Harlow Council and Harlow Art Trust has been really impressive and I’m really pleased about the way that everyone has enthusiastically embraced this project.”
