YOUNG photographer Sophie Vowles took first place in a competition organised by Devizes Rotary Club.

Sophie, who is a pupil at Lavington School, near Devizes took a series of three pictures that looked at everyday scenes from extreme angles and perspectives.

Alison Batchelor from the Rotary Club visited the school to present Sophie with a certificate for coming first in the Rotary Young Photographer competition. She went on to represent the town in a district competition where she received encouraging feedback despite not being placed.

She has had previous success in the Lawrence Society young artist competition and the Wiltshire Museum art contest.
