The results of the 2016 Ilford Photo Student Photography competition have been announced. 

With almost 1000 entries, from schools, colleges and universities across the country, the 2016 competition witnessed an exceptionally high standard of darkroom printing which took several rounds of judging and plenty of debate before the winning images were selected.

The standard was so high this year that the judges have also awarded an additional three images as highly commended along with the overall winner and runner-up.

The title of ‘Ilford Photo Student Photographer of the Year 2016’ has been awarded to Maria Elizabeth Rotela Pereira from North East College Scotland for her print entitled 'Dragon' while Josh Klaire from Sandwell College was awarded the runner-up prize for his image 'Darkness within'. Nikki Wilcock from Blackpool and The Fylde College, Phoebe Hall from Leeds College of Art and Justas Katinas from Sandwell College all submitted images which received 'Highly Commended' accolades. Leeds College of Art took the 'college prize' for submitting the most eligible entries.

Matt Parry, Marketing Manager at Harman technology said: "Not only has the standard of entries been exceptionally high this year but the creativity and originality shown has been equally impressive. We are always excited to see how the themes we set are interpreted and it is fair to say that this year's students have embraced the Pretty Ugly theme. While the winners clearly stood out there were many others that could have taken the title which continues to highlight the quality of the teaching and the talent of students."
