Speaking on Kim’s achievement, East Sussex College Media lecturer, Olivia Thorne, said, “We're immensely proud of all our students' successes and were thrilled to hear that Kim's image 'Trolley' was chosen for the online exhibition. To have been shortlisted out of 21,000 entries is not to be taken lightly and this is a fantastic boost to Kim's confidence as a creative individual and photographer.

“Kim has been a pleasure to teach these past two years and he has now been offered an unconditional place at Bath Spa University to study BA (Hons) Photography. We're so happy for him and wish him all the success.”

Olivia added, “Every year we encourage all our Photography students to enter multiple competitions including the Royal Academy Young Artists' Summer Show 2022. We've had several successful students' work chosen for exhibition over the years and this year certainly did not disappoint.”
