The Pixel Prize is a photographic competition for secondary school students held by the Australian Catholic University. This year’s theme was ‘Empathy’ encouraging students to look beyond themselves and take a photo that challenges the viewer to see a different point of view. Killester submitted 42 entries, with 38 shortlisted and one major winner. On Thursday the 16th of November ACU hosted the gallery opening with all the shortlisted entries on display. At the event and the winners were announced. We are very pleased to announce the winner for best composition on the theme 2017 is Christina Nathan from year 10. Christina and her family were present to receive the prestigious award.
Christina’s photo was titled ‘Trapped’ it shows a girl looking out and possibly feeling like she’s trapped behind the fence, and wants to escape. Congratulations to all the students who entered and to Christina for her winning photo.
