Three budding photographers from City College have beaten almost 1,000 students from across the country to make the final of a national photography competition.
The trio, who are all studying for an extended diploma in photography, entered photos on the theme of 'Further Education and Me' for a competition run by FE Week Newspaper, which asked for photos depicting student life.
They are among 10 finalists, selected from more than 980 entries.
Emily Witham, 16, from Lingwood, used alphabetti spaghetti to spell out 'student life' on a plate surrounded by her textbooks, in a photo which also features her posing for a photo on her mobile phone.
She said: 'The photo is actually two photos layered over each other. The first is of my actual dinner, and the second is a selfie I took on Snapchat. Combined, I thought they represented student life well.'

Kloe Watts, 16, from Thetford, photographed a tired, hardworking student with a book over her head in the college library, and said: 'We were asked to go and get library books for our course and my friend flopped over the chair in tiredness. I decided at that point it was going to be my photo for the competition.'
Millicent Ruhl-Barrett, 17 from Cromer, captured a relaxed and laughing student as her interpretation of the theme.

Photography course leader Jon Clark said he was proud of the students, and added: 'Photography is not just about learning in the classroom, but about working with people. Providing students with opportunities to work with external agencies develops their ability to photograph strangers and work to a deadline, which really is invaluable for their professional development.'
