Congratulations to one of our photography students, Nicola Cooper is a winner! Here’s the text from her newspaper article…
A FORMER quiz show hostess who gave up her TV career to move to rural Wales has won a national photography competition with a picture taken only months after she was given a camera. Nicola Cooper’s shot was judged the best at capturing the essence of the British winter in the My UK contest.
Nicola, 34, a mother of three and former Sky TV presenter, gave up her career in London to move to Ceredigion with her family two years ago. Her husband, Sam, gave her the camera because she was pregnant and bored.
She said the shot of a horse in an icy landscape was taken ‘just opposite my house on a freezing cold first frost of this winter. Still in my PJs, I made a mad dash out in my wellies.’Her prize was a 40in 3D Sony television. The contest was run by the World Photography Organisation, in partnership with Metro and Sony UK.
