Rotary Nailsea and Backwell invited students from Nailsea and Backwell secondary schools to take part in young photographer of the year contest.

The theme of this year's competition was Through My Eyes, which encouraged a wide range of creative and inspired images from both schools.

Judges Roy Ackrill and Bob Keightley, along with Peter Holt from Backwell Camera Club, had the difficult task of picking winners from the impressive entries.

Sidney won the intermediate class, while Laura came top in the senior class.
