The Eaton Portrait Prize is awarded to a BA Photography student at the Cambridge School of Art, whose portrait captures the judges’ eye through a combination of sensitivity, creativity and skill. The Eaton Portrait Prize is unique prize for the BA Photography students at the Cambridge School of Art, which is generously sponsored by Andy Eaton, an alumnus of our course. His generous support has been greatly appreciated.

Last year’s winning entry (pictured right) was Sterrin by Anna Kressler –

“A girl in a refugee camp in the Dunkirk suburb of Grand-Synthe in France, smiling.  According to the mayor Damien Careme the number of refugees in Grande-Synthe increased from about sixty in July 2015 to approximately 2,400-2,500 in the first few months of 2016, when this photograph was taken. Sterrin was one of around 200 children who lived in the camp in squalid conditions. I do not know what happened to her but I hope that despite this uncertain future she and her family will one day live in dignity again in a place they can call home.”
