Fox Talbot Photographic Competition

Photography is supported each year with a Fox Talbot digital competition. This is named after William Henry Fox Talbot an old Harrovian who was credited for producing the first photograph on paper in 1941. Every boy in the school can enter and first prize is £500.00. For the last fifteen years this prestigious award has been most generously sponsored by Dr. Richard Petty whose son, William, was at Harrow from 1995-2000.

The gallery of images show previous winners from the two different categories, Senior and Junior. There is no dimming of enthusiasm at Harrow for Photography. On the contrary, we are sure that Fox Talbot himself would have been most impressed by the work of our new generation.
