After a number of entries for the photography competition, a select panel including Trust Ambassador and Capital FM Breakfast Show presenter, Dave Berry picked the top two, who both happened to attend Plumstead Manor School.

Year 12 student Fatma Kavak, was one of the winners, with her pictures focusing on nature and her surroundings, she said, “This competition was a great experience and I really enjoyed it. I also used the pictures I took for the competition as part of my art course.”

Fellow pupil, Oshin Gurung, of year 10, also claimed joint top spot with a portfolio of snaps of monuments taken around Greenwich, “It was a really interesting brief and I’m proud to have won!"
