Stunning Local Photography on Display at Clydebank Library
The best photographs of West Dunbartonshire from this year’s Picture This competition are now on display at Clydebank Library.
The striking images show the local area at its finest and were all shortlisted by judges searching for the best student entry from West College Scotland.
Visitors to the library will see this year’s winning picture by Clydebank Campus photography student Simona Ciocarlan.
Simona won the top prize of £300 worth of camera equipment from sponsors Calumet and will also get to spend a day with Stewart Cunningham of Great Scot Photography. Simona’s image of the Balloch Boat House impressed judges for its beautiful composition on the stunning banks of Loch Lomond.
Residents can see the full selection of shortlisted photographs taken by students including the Titan Crane, Dumbarton Castle, Loch Lomond and Bowling, which were viewed more than 12,000 times on the Council’s Flickr page and were praised by judges for being sharp, colourful and striking.
Councillor Michelle McGinty, Convener of Educational Services, said:
"I would like to congratulate all the students for their entries which made this year’s competition one of the strongest yet. I would encourage residents to go along and see exhibition of these great photographs which show off all the natural beauty we have on our doorstep in West Dunbartonshire.”
The Picture This competition is jointly organised by West Dunbartonshire Council and the College, with support from Calumet, the Romanes Group and Great Scot Photography.
Councillor John Mooney, Depute Convener of Educational Services, said:
“The standard of the photography is outstanding with many creative pictures which really highlights the great imagination and talent of the students. I’m sure the students are thrilled to have their creative work on display at Clydebank Library and no doubt everyone who goes along will agree they have captured the area at its best.”
Visitors can see the Picture This 2014 exhibition at Clydebank Library until Saturday, 27 September.
The Library is open from 9.30am to 7.55pm Monday to Thursday and 9.30am to 4.55pm on Friday and Saturday.
