Lauren Gilhom, A-level Art & Design/Photography class of 2020, has been awarded the prestigious Michael Ormerod Photography Travel Award. Lauren is currently studying Photography at Newcastle University and is the first ever Level 4 student to win the award. Lauren pitched her photo-shoot proposal to the panel of judges, including all the financial and logistics involved, and created the artwork during Summer 2021 in Scotland. We are all very proud of Lauren on her achievement and look forward to seeing the work in person in her exhibition at Mandela Gallery, Newcastle University, 21 February to 7 March.
