Cape Cornwall student is runner-up in prestigious photo comp

Comments (0)

A student from Cape Cornwall School has come second in a prestigious international photography competition run by The Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew, winning £100 for her efforts.

13-year-old Jasmine Clegg also achieved two final and one commended placement in the category Young Garden Photographer of the Year.

This is the second time Jasmine has been successful in this competition as three years ago she won third prize.

Jasmine was given her first camera on her seventh birthday by her photographer mum who she often joins on photography trips including some with the Cornwall Wildlife Trust Photography Group.

She said: “I was really excited and happy when I found out I had come second, and thrilled that four of my photos made it to the last stages of the competition.

“I don’t really plan my photos. I just see interesting subjects and go from there although I am particularly interested in the natural world.”

Although it is just a hobby at the moment, Jasmine is looking forward to studying photography at GCSE at Cape Cornwall School.
