Judges Top Tips

Here are some helpful tips on what the judges will be looking for:

Capture people in a natural setting, doing what they do.

Having the light source (sunlight/window/lighting) behind the camera will result in more visible photos and videos.

We celebrate diversity and inclusivity. The judges would love to see these portrayed in your entries.

Think about what makes your organisation special and try to capture that.
