Art and design student Samantha Humphreys has won a Chelmsford photography competition with her depiction of the hustle and bustle of the High Chelmer shopping centre.

Sam, a final year FdA Digital Art & Design student, took lots of photographs of the shopping centre at the same time and put them together. Her photograph was named as the best entry in the My Chelmsford photography competition, winning £100 to spend in High Chelmer and a canvas of her photograph.

Sam, who would like to teach art at Higher Education level after graduating, said: "I'm so happy to have won this prize.

"My winning image was one of a series I created in the town centre. For 'Energy' I took several photos within a few seconds of each other and blended them to show moments of city life, highlighting the harmony of all generations and the energy within this thriving community."
