Digital Photography 2023


The digital photography competition was open to Key Stage 1 students, and teachers were asked to follow the resource’s activity information, teachers’ notes and curriculum links, encourage students to complete the tasks and then email the results as entries to AIT’s competition.

The competition’s activity involved learners using digital cameras to capture images, then editing the images in the style of either of two digital artists, Sean Charmatz and Stephen McMennamy.

The Archives of IT (AIT) digital photography competition ran alongside the first of a series of five new lesson plans created in collaboration with The Institution of Engineering and Technology focusing on technology, one of which is photography.

Follow the instructions in the presentation below:


Digital camera prizes

The best entry will win a set of five digital cameras and memory cards for their school, with a runner up winning two digital cameras and a memory card for their school. The competition will be decided by a judging panel made up of AIT trustees.

We have chosen as the prizes the VTech KidiZoom Studio/Digital Camera with Special Effects, (or similar if out of stock).

We will also create a gallery with a selection of the competition entries.

The deadline for the competition was 28 April 2023 but this has now been extended to Friday 19 May. Please email your students’ competition entries (and any questions you may have) to education@archivesit.org.uk clearly stating in the headline: AIT Schools Photography Competition.
