Photography student as runner up in ILFORD Photo Competition

Degree student Eleanor Shoesmith is studying in her first year of the BA (HONS) Photography course at Harrogate College. Eleanor came across the ILFORD Photo Competition, Best in Black and White, and jumped at the chance to enter.

ILFORD Photo is ‘passionate about black and white’ and over their 130 year history, there has always been a positive commitment to this tradition. In 2015, they launched a competition called ‘Saturday Night at the Movies’ which received just under 1000 entries.

Eleanor took her inspiration from the film American Sniper and used her partner who serves in the Army, to shoot a beautiful black and white image of an armed soldier pointing his gun straight at the lens of the camera.

Eleanor’s image was shortlisted to the final judging and was placed as a runner up.

Congratulations Eleanor!
