27th October 2003





The going is good for four photography students from the University of Lincoln who have scooped one-third of the prizes in a racing photography competition run by a leading Sunday newspaper.


Dave Tully (37), Mick Hill (42), David Lacey (22) and Patricia Henningsson (22) from Sweden will all see their horse racing photographs published in the Sunday Telegraph magazine next month and in a special calendar next year.


The four students, who are all enrolled on the Contemporary Lens Media (Photography and Video) degree at the Lincoln School of Art & Design, entered the Sunday Telegraph’s ‘Racing Spirit Photography Challenge 2003’ competition.


“The brief was challenging,” said course leader Keith James. “We only had two weekends available to visit Market Rasen and Southwell racecourse, but the students who participated came up with the goods.


“The images selected show great sensitivity and awareness of the subject and the requirements of the brief. It will be a great achievement to see their work published in a major national magazine supplement and it bodes well for their futures as photographers.


“Every year the degree aims to achieve high-profile results in major awards and competitions, and this is yet another fantastic achievement for the students and the programme.”


The students’ images will appear in the Sunday Telegraph magazine on Sunday 16th November and will be used in the Official British Horseracing Board 2004 calendar.
