A FAMILY snap saw a youngster snap first place in a national photography competition.

Annabelle Gibson, who attends All Saints Primary in Leek Wootton, wowed judges in cartridgesave.co.uk’s ‘Generation P’ photography competition.

The seven-year-old won £1,000 of photographic equipment for her school, as well as a £100 camera for herself by capturing the moment her little brother Fletcher pointed out a a rainbow to their Grandad.

The competition challenged youngsters aged four to 11 across the country to take a photo of something that mattered to them and explain why.

Annabelle said in her entry: “I love rainbows. Mummy gave me her camera, so I could take a picture of a rainbow. But when I got outside, I saw my little brother Fletcher showing grandad the rainbow.”

Judge Stuart Nicol, a former head of pictures for the Daily Telegraph and Press Association, said: “This was the standout photo of the whole competition.

“I loved the interaction and, crucially, the story between the grandfather and his grandson. It’s all about that relationship. It’s just terrific.”
