NEW FOR 2022 At every workshop we have had fun hosting a small Photo Contest upon registration to stretch the opportunities for the children participating. NOW we have stepped it up and have transformed it into a keepsake for the children and their parents.


Upon the Sign Up post we announce our Shutterbug Photo Contest Themes. 
You can enter, One, or both. 
You bring your photo (s) entry to registration in print form with your Childs name on the back and the theme contest you wish to enter it in.
It is £5.00 to enter One Photo to One Contest

or £10.00 to enter Unlimited to One Contest

The photo contest is NOT judged by Dani. 

The Top 5 Will be selected and in amongst the 5 selected will be the WINNER. 

One Competition theme will have a PRIZE that will win the COVER of MODEL MINDS MAGAZINE yes you heard right! Bringing back this beloved publication from our 2016 Classes feels me with joy. This prize will be a photo chosen by Dani from the workshop experience and will be the COVER. Inside the winning Model will have a featured spread with their winning image, an interview and more.
The Top 5 in BOTH contests will all be featured inside the magazine with Spotlight Double Feature spreads. 
The Prize of the other competition will vary from workshop to workshop but will always be industry focused and one of their images from workshop will be featured on the BACK cover of the Magazine. 
Everybody who participates where permission grants will be featured inside the publication. 
The magazine will be available to download for FREE Digitally, or to buy in Print form delivered to your door. It was a little touch of an idea I thought would be just ideal for those wishing to add to their keepsakes for their children as they grow whether they choose to be apart of the industry when they grow up or not.
