Brief: 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.

Weekly photography challenges will be posted every Monday on this page (scroll down), and on our social media: @sharp_shots_photo_club on instagram or @sharpshotsphotoclub on facebook

*Photographs can be taken on a camera or mobile phone*


What to submit:

  1. 1 photo for each weekly task (participants don’t have to do each week)
  2. The photograph must be taken the week of the challenge
  3. Caption each photograph with details about the image
  4. Email the photo, photographer’s name & age and a photo caption to competition@sharpshotsphotoclub.co.uk; or tag the photo on instagram under #grounded2020photo
  5. Weekly competition closes every Friday 6pm

Weekly Winners:

There will be a weekly winner for each weekly task, announced every Saturday & the weekly winner will be able to choose a Sharp Shots Online Photography Course of their choice.
