Ely Christmas Photo Project 2011
Locality youth workers wanted to encourage young people to take photos of a local event and raise awareness of the usage of photography in media.
A competition was agreed with feedback from the young people and a project was developed with ADEC (Arts Development in East Cambridgeshire).
10 participants took photos on the night and two of the young people were from out of the area and had not engaged in any previous youth activities.
The complete project involved some detached youth work on the night of the photography session and a total of 4 volunteers and 15 young people participated.
Below are two of the winning photographs:
