Thirteen-year-old Nika Kapushesky has been named as the winner of a photographic competition run by the Cambridge Forum for the Construction Industry (CFCI).

Open to students attending secondary school or sixth form college in Cambridgeshire, the contest tasked young people with photographing a building or aspect of the built environment.

The Cambridge Independent’s editor and picture editor helped to judge the images.

Nika, a Year 9 pupil at the Stephen Perse Foundation, won a £300 prize and said: “I took this photograph in the Judge Business School and the beautiful colours on the interior of the building inspired me.

“The lighting made the colours stand out brilliantly, and really brought the photograph together.

“When I heard I won, I was elated, and extremely happy for the rest of the week.

“In general, I like to photograph nature and architecture, but I would love to photograph more people.”

Two runners-up won £100: Matthew James, of Long Road Sixth Form College, who photographed the School of Clinical Medicine, and Maria Awan, of Stephen Perse Senior School, for her image of the Boathouse on the River.

Stephen Walsh, a trustee of the CFCI, said: “The CFCI trustees are delighted with the number of entries this year and with the very high standard.

“This is the second year that the competition has been run and it has grown in popularity.

“The range of subjects was very diverse and the submitted entries all give an excellent flavour of the built environment in Cambridge.”
