KENT SCHOOL GAMES SPORTS PHOTOGRAPHY

The Kent School Games is a multi-sport competition open to all young people aged 4 – 18 in primary, secondary and special needs schools. Off the back of the success of the Kent School Games, in 2012 the national, annual School Games programme began. The Games are a unique opportunity to motivate and inspire millions of young people across the country to take part in more competitive school sport.

The Games are made up of four levels of activity: competition in schools, between schools, at county/area level and a national event for the most talented school age athletes.

The photography today was showing the link up between Canterbury Christ Church University's sports staff and students with the school children who were participating in the days events. The Panathlon event showed the diversity of sports that the young people were competing in, these included long jump, javelin and wheelchair racing. Out on the sports field the girls were playing Kwik Cricket on the cricket pitches, weather was ideal for the events and he lenses used were 300mm F4 and the more flexible 70-200mm F2.8. The photographs for the University will be used for student recruitment across a various range of digital and printed media.
