Parliamentary Recognition For Fraserburgh Academy Young Photographers

Banff & Buchan MSP Stewart Stevenson has praised the work of four young photographers from Fraserburgh Academy who won major photographic awards in a national competition recently.

Focus Environment is an environmental photographic competition for secondary school pupils throughout Scotland. The competition encourages young people between the ages of 11-18 to demonstrate their awareness of the natural world around them. A combination of imagination, observation and photographic flair can win cash prizes for pupils and their schools.

At the awards ceremony last month in Edinburgh, Fraserburgh Academy pupils scooped 5 of the 24 prizes, the highest representation from any school in Scotland.

Now, local MSP Stewart Stevenson has put down a Motion in Parliament congratulating the pupils, teachers and the school on their tremendous achievement. Commenting, he said:

“This is a truly magnificent achievement for the young people concerned and reflects very well on Fraserburgh Academy.

“The photographs, which can be viewed online, are simply stunning and show a real talent on the part of the photographers.

“I send my congratulations to the photographers and I’m delighted to be able to recognise their achievements by putting down a Motion in Parliament.”
