The Alternative Selfie Photography Competition with Royal Photographic Society & Nikon School 

We have joined with the Royal Photographic Society for this ‘Alternative Selfie’ competition. 


For this competition we want you to tell the story of who you are through photography. It is an exploration of identity and the self, expressing who you are through a photographic story made up of 3 – 5 images. We want you to express yourself through your style, hobbies, music- whatever it is that makes you, you. 

Age categories:

Ages 7 – 11 & 12 – 15

How to enter:

‘The Alternative Selfie’ calls for young people, aged between 7-15 years, to capture a series of images that tell the story of who they are, going beyond the standard ‘selfie’. 

To enter the competition, share your submissions on Instagram using the hashtag #SSaltselfie. Tell us your name, age and short description of your photographic series. Make sure you follow and tag both @sharp_shots_photo_club and @royalphotographicsociety too! Alternatively you can email your entries and comments to
