The schools of the winning students were also presented with cheques.
The judges for the over 18 were Gary Grimshaw of Photo Reportage, Scott Haynes of our design agency ‘The Beach Communications’ and Edward Moore, CEO of Aztec Group.
Our under 18 judges were Peter Mourant of the JEP, Carol Wilson, COO of Aztec Group and Paul Houghton of Aztec Group.
The photographic competition was launched to celebrate the Aztec Group’s first ten years in Jersey. The idea was to encourage local photography students and budding photographers to submit their own interpretation of one or more of our themes – ‘bright,’ ‘alternative’ and ‘ten.’
The exhibition features over 150 exceptional photographs taken by students from Hautlieu, Highlands College, Jersey College for Girls, Victoria College, De La Salle, Les Quennevais as well as photographs entered by the general public.
Edward Moore, CEO of the Aztec Group, commented ‘I am delighted with the response to our Aztec 10 competition. Having judged over 400 photographs the judges were very impressed with the entries, all of a very high standard and may I take this opportunity to congratulate our talented winners.’
Photographs can be purchased throughout the two week exhibition. Money will be raised for three local charities, Help a Jersey Child, Jersey Hospice Care and Jersey Animals’ Shelter. Each entrant selected their chosen charity and all profits from sales of their images will go to the charity of their choice.
Our exhibition is open every week day from 12.00 until 14.00 and on Saturday 17 March from 10.00 until 14.00 for anyone to pop in and view the exhibition.
The Aztec Group is an independent owner managed fund administration business founded in Jersey in 2001. In ten years the Group has grown to over 110 staff in four jurisdictions, Jersey, Guernsey, Luxembourg and the United Kingdom.
