Surrey’s Sharp Shots Photography Club Teams Up with The Royal Photographic Society & the Nikon School.
As people have been asked to stay at home, due to the COVID-19 virus, we are encouraging kids and teens to photograph their “grounded” life at home, in isolation. Kids & teens will be encouraged to photograph their daily life through fun weekly challenges, which will inspire them to create dynamic images and learn new skills.
This newly launched competition is a double win for parents: keeping the kids busy with a skills-based activity and the chance to win an array of prizes. It’s brought to you by The Royal Photographic Society (RPS), The Nikon School and Sharp Shots Photography Club, based in Dorking, Surrey and run by renowned photographer, author, & photography teacher Lillian Spibey.
It couldn’t be simpler – kids (or their parents) sign up to receive weekly challenges and then upload photos via email or Instagram. Best of all, entrants don’t need fancy equipment – any camera or smartphone with a camera will do.
The top prizes include a Nikon camera, RPS membership, Goody Bags, and a photography book by Lillian Spibey. There are also weekly winners, announced each Saturday, to keep kids interested and determined, who will receive online photography courses from Sharp Shots Photography Club. There are two age groups for the competition – 7 to 11 years and 12 to 16 years, each with their own set of prizes and runners-up prizes. Visit www.sharpshotsphotoclub.co.uk/photography-competitions/grounded/ for the full list, T’s & C’s with more information and tips.
The competition is under way now. Weekly winners are announced on Saturdays and the top prizes will be announced June 26th 2020.
