The National Museum of Bermuda [NMB] recently revealed the 27 finalists of the Dr. Reg Grundy Annual Youth Photography Competition: Your Eyes on Bermuda, and all their outstanding photos are featured in this virtual art show.

A spokesperson previously said, “In memory of Dr. Reg Grundy, AC, OBE, whose photographic legacy and passion for Bermuda live on in his work, Mrs. Joy Chambers Grundy and NMB established the Dr. Reg Grundy Annual Youth Photography Competition in 2019. Open to all local photography enthusiasts aged 7 – 18, the competition is designed to inspire the next generation of photographers and encourage an appreciation for Bermuda’s natural and cultural environment and a desire to protect it.”

Students submitted photos for the themes Bermuda Families, Bermuda Buildings and Bermuda Nature in three age categories, 7-10, 11-14 and 15-18, and the NMB said the judges — photographer Meredith Andrews, NMB Curator Dr. Deborah Atwood and Reg Grundy Photographic Libraries Curator Chinni Mahadevan — had a “trying time choosing finalists from nearly 800 submissions, submitted by 29 different schools.”

When asked about this year’s competition, Mrs. Grundy said: “The standard of the photographs in this year’s competition was exceptional. Hearty congratulations to all who entered. I hope that our competition might inspire at least one of the entrants to become a professional photographer one day.”
