Water Works February winner

Water Works winning photograph 'The Magic Fountain' by Louis Pasqualini
This picture was taken in my kitchen to show the power, energy and life that water brings to my house and family.

Seven-year-old Louis Pasqualini of Ratho Primary School has been announced as the first monthly winner of the Water Works schools photography competition for his entry titled 'The Magic Water Fountain'.

Describing his photograph of water splashing from his kitchen tap Louis said: "This picture was taken in my kitchen to show the power, energy and life that water brings to my house and family."

It captured the judges imagination who commented: "Our early experiences of water are often associated with water from the tap in our homes. This image captured those first experiences and accurately portrays water as dynamic, fun and important. It is indeed to many "a magic water fountain".

With so many high quality entries to choose from the judges also highly commended entries from Ethan Glass, Belmont Academy, Ayr and Tomas Morris, Ratho Primary School.

All the entries can be seen on our Facebook gallery page.

Full details of the competition and how to enter can be found here. A winner will be chosen each month as well as an overall winner for the year who will receive vouchers and a canvas print of their photograph.

The Water Works competition is being run by CREW, the Centre of Expertise for Waters.
