This is the 5th year of the annual Kate Edger Educational Charitable Trust (KEECT) School Competition sponsored by Timeless Images Photography and once again, the entries received showed that we have an amazing pool of young talent in the creative arts.  The judges were delighted with the variety and creativity in the interpretation of this year’s theme “my Passion, my Heart, my Soul “.

Students showed us that passion, heart & soul exists in many forms and areas including people, places, pets, whānau, whakapapa, music, dance, art, photography, writing, and most importantly within themselves.  Thank you to all our entrants who took the time to share their stories and creativity, and congratulations to our top 12 finalists and winners.

The KEECT would like to thank the following judges for the time and effort they put into the difficult task of selecting the winning entries:

Lisa Harrington – sponsor and owner of Timeless Images Photography
