A Peterhead Academy student has won this year’s Rock Challenge People’s Choice Award Photographic Competition.

Holly Strachan’s picture of celebrations at the event scooped 580 likes - 79 more than second placed Gordon Robertson from Alness Academy.

Evan Findleton from Arbroath High School took third place with 470 likes, while another Peterhead Academy student, Ethan Morgan, took fourth spot with only one like less.

The annual competition asks folk to like the photograph and the top number recorded by 4pm on Tuesday, July 12, took top spot.

Organisers said of Holly’s entry: “What a lovely photograph to capture the spirit of the event.”
