We were thrilled by the quality of the images submitted to our 2023 photography competition which was open to any students, parents and staff at any of the 80 partner schools who are working with Vantage North Humber Teacher Training. Winners received a £50 voucher and those judged 'Highly Commended' a £10 voucher.
We were looking for eye-catching photos of the region north of the Humber, including Hull and the East Riding. Since our name and logo is inspired by the concept and map symbol for a vantage point, we wanted to know the vantage point from which photographs were taken and why the image appealed or was important to the photographer.
Wish you'd entered? Watch out for our 2024 competition later this year. More details to follow.

Keira T, aged 14
"My vantage point is from Hessle foreshore, looking out at the Humber Bridge. We went out for a walk with my baby brother who was 5 months old at the time, it was a nice unusually warm day for October & I took lots of photos on the day but this is my favourite for the competition because it’s from my vantage point, looking at the bear’s vantage point too".
Alison Cook, Member of staff at Dorchester Primary School
"The photograph was taken from Lowgate showing four of the fabulous landmarks that Hull has to offer: The Old Post Office building (standing on the site of Suffolk Palace), St Mary's Church, the Guildhall and Wilberforce Statue".
