Beautiful Surrey with Surrey Life

Every year we join forces with Surrey Life for their ‘Beautiful Surrey’ Photography competitions for 7 – 16 year olds and you could win a Nikon camera! Competition closes September 11, 2020.


“Grounded” Photography Competition – in collaboration with Nikon & The Royal Photographic Society

Prizes –  Nikon Cameras, Royal Photographic Society membership, Sharp Shots online courses & books

Due to the COVID-19 virus, people have been asked to stay home and self isolate to keep safe and healthy. As a result, 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.



Every month we run our #sharpshooter20 photography competitions for your chance to win a FREE photography workshop with us!



From March 27th – April 17th 2020 we launched a new weekly #sharpshotschallenge for young photographers aged between 7 – 16 to enter their photos for a chance to WIN one of our Online courses of their choice. The competition has now finished.
