Kilmarnock Pupils Enter Photography Competition

The Scottish Civic Trust organises annually a Scotland-wide heritage photographic project for schools entitled "My Place".  It encourages children to look at their local heritage and, through the medium of photography, develop an understanding of the environment around them.
Pupils of Kilmarnock schools entered the competition while exploring The Kilmarnock Town Trail with Graham Boyd and were encouraged by him to take interesting and some rather unusual photographs. 

All entries to the competition will be displayed at The Lighthouse, Scotland's Centre for Design and Architecture (in the lane off Buchanan Street), in Glasgow from Friday 27th March 2015, for six weeks. It's well worth half an hour of your time if you're in the vicinity to take a look at the entries.  Entry to the exhibition is free.
If you can't manage along to the Lighthouse you can see the Killie entries at

The photographs will be on display locally in the Dick Institute from Friday 24th April 2015.
The exhibition is called  'Kilmarnock Schools - Our Town Through A Lens'
