A “creative and talented” Thomas Clarkson Academy student has won the top prize for her age in a photography competition.

Diana Rubene, 18, submitted three pieces based around the theme ‘reflection’ for the Rotary Young Photographer contest. She is now through to the district final.

Diana, who is studying art, ICT and business at the Wisbech college and plans to go to university, was awarded with a certificate and commemorative photo frame.

She said: “I am passionate about art, love to be challenged and am always ready to try new things.

“Photography is something I actually had not done before and now I have found a new way to look at art from a different point of view.”

She added that her ideal job would be working as an international event manager, as it combines all of her passions.

“I am interested in art, photography, music, languages and sport. I really like to be a role model that younger students look up to and see that it is great to be involved in different events.
