AWARD-WINNING photographs taken by Saffron Walden schoolchildren have been made into an eye-catching public exhibition.
The snaps, which were all taken as part of the My Summer photography competition, were unveiled at Saffron Walden Library today (Thursday) and will be on display until December 10.
The competition was organised by Dame Bradbury's School and Claire Moir Photography and was open to children from all the Saffron Walden schools.
The children were asked to send in a photograph that captured their own view of summer and the submitted entries covered a range of subjects from sunflowers to seasides.
