I chose this photo because i love the symetry that’s displayed. A viewer has to take a step back and figure out what there looking at. The architecture of the hotel was fascinating and stood out to me when looking up at.

The warmth was beautiful this day. How the light reflects on the water is mesmerizing to me, and the building colors in the back make the photo feel like home.

When thinking about Bermuda buildings, limestone comes to mind. I wanted this photo to show people that there were houses built out of wood. I took this picture while driving in Somerset. I like the lines in the photo and the brightness in the middle. I call it 'Wooden Walls'.

"Morning roof perspectives". I took this picture before school one morning because it shows a limestone Bermuda stepped roof. In the front you will see the traditional roof structure for water collection and in back an example of how the roof is incorporated into traditional Bermudian architecture.

“Moonbeams” Photography requires passion, patience and perseverance. To capture this image I stayed up late, visiting the lighthouse for three nights during the full moon, changing angles by climbing walls or kneeling while holding the camera very still, taking 50 shots before getting beams of light aligned with the moon.

I took this photo in St. Georges and I really like it because I saw the reflection of the building in the puddle of water and got down very low to take the picture. The puddle was left over from the rain and i love feeling the rain!

“Sunrise” I took this picture early in the morning as the sun was rising in the east. I like the way the sun was shining behind the St. David’s Lighthouse it makes it look almost 3 dimensional. The cloud formation is very cool too.

This picture represents Bermuda’s history and how the first constructions were built to protect our island. It shows how strong it is, just like when Bermudians get together to help each other after a hurricane or difficult times. I took it from the second floor at the History Museum.

Bermuda Families

Mother-daughter love This picture is of a loving mother helping her daughter do homework. Through these hard times switching from online and in-person teaching. Even if she is tired after work she takes time out to help her daughter accomplish her goals. This picture means a lot because some children don't have the privilege of having a loving mother.

In this picture I captured the moment of an uncle and his niece enjoying Halloween with no care in the world. I got this moment for a keepsake while they are still young and carefree. It represents this category because they’re family and family should always enjoy each other‘s company.

This photograph makes me feel happy because my family and I were making poppies for Remembrance Day. They were laughing because my brother told a little joke. It was hard to keep my phone still because I was laughing so hard.

Honourable Mention

Lara Nicholson Pavkovic
Middle School (11-14), Warwick Academy

I chose this photograph because it represents my “family” (my closest friends ) and I like the stunning sunset on north shore near my house! Also it’s quite hard to get a photo like that without it ending up blurry, but at least the water was warm and really flat.

“The family that grows together eats healthy” The great thing about Bermuda families is that they can be church, school, or community. Anyone can be your cousin. My family has farmed vegetables, fruits and flowers here for 25 years. While cultivating the land, we become closer and have fun together.

Nature is a beautiful thing, and every now and then you capture an image that you never really thought you could. This is that photo for me. To capture this duck taking flight in such a way requires a lot of patience. You have to wait for the perfect moment.

I enjoyed being by the shoreline watching a fleet of longtails overhead. I was totally in awe. As admired them, I noticed many nests in the rocks below. I was delighted that I spotted a longtail that looked comfortable in its nest. It almost felt like living in a dream.

This photo represents my passion for the ocean and the amazing sea life within it. I felt a strong connection to this turtle as it looked straight into my eyes. Turtles are a sign of good luck showing that nature in Bermuda will recover from the effects of climate change.

These butterflies are super pretty and they are Bermuda butterflies! They flutter and dance around the colourful Bermuda flowers. I love going on nature walks with my family and seeing the butterflies playing together.
