School of Music and Fine Art – Student Instagram Competition Results

We are delighted to announce the winners of our first ever SMFA student Instagram competition.

The brief was to celebrate the unique setting of The School of Music and Fine Art in the  breathtaking Historic Dockyard Chatham by calling for images of our campus created by SMFA students posted on our @UniKentMFA Instagram page with our hashtag #smfacreative.

We were delighted that Vicky Price, Community Engagement Officer of Chatham Historic Dockyard Trust, agreed to select the winning entries and her comments are below:

“They’re a great bunch of photographs!  I’ve decided on a winner and 2 runners up, and there is a fourth photograph I wanted to ‘highly commend’.


Winner: (£20 Amazon voucher) Dave Perry , 1st Year Music Technology – “Because it really brings out the power and scale of HMS Cavalier.”



Runners up: (£10 Amazon vouchers) Dave Perry – “A view not often considered, and beautifully lit to reveal the brickwork.  Also great because it puts Kent University’s presence and the historic nature of The Historic Dockyard’s architecture together so well.”



Emma Greenwood, 1st Year Event and Experience Design “A really pleasing composition of a view, again, not often considered.  Lovely play with light and shadows.”



Highly commended: Dave Perry  “The colours, contrast and wide reach of the lens in this image is striking.  I felt that, on a large scale, printed, this would be a fantastic image – it just isn’t done justice on Instagram.”

Thanks to everyone who took part.  Don’t forget to check our @UniKentMFA Instagram account, enjoy the pics, post your own and watch out for our next competition!
