A TEENAGER is in the frame to launch her dream career after picking up a prestigious photography award.

Bex Saunders, 16, has been selected as one of the winners in the inaugural ZSL Animal Photography competition.

The Peter Symonds College student won the ‘Size Matters’ category with her striking image of a tiny frog, which she snapped while walking in Tadburn Meadows.

Her picture had already been announced as the winner of the junior category, but it has now won the overall junior prize, beating stiff competition from the other category winners.

The latest success is one of more than 40 awards the former Mountbatten School pupil has won for her work, including being ranked in the top 20 of the International Times Young Photographer of the Year Award.
