Fellow art and design student Rachel Bassett, 18, was runner-up in the 18 and over section.
Ellie based her work on a photograph of an African child taken during a trip to Namibia.
She said: "I was extremely flattered by the award. It was a personal photograph which had a deep meaning to me."
Ellie, Becky and Rachel beat competition from more than 300 entries from 40 schools, colleges and universities.
Canterbury College had 24 students short-listed, more than any other school or college. Its students have won Page Turner awards every year the competition has been running.
The Page Turner competition is organised by the University for the Creative Arts, Turner Contemporary and the Kent and Medway Progression Federation. The theme was Determination and Courage to tie in with the Olympic and Paralympic Games.
