Do you have a gap in your weekly programme to fill? Are you looking for a creative challenge for the members of your section? Are any members of your section keen photographers? Well look no further! The Creative Activities Team is running another photographic competition for all members of Scouting within North Yorkshire, including Leaders.


The theme of this year’s photographic competition is “Reflections”. This an incredibly broad theme which can be interpreted in many ways by the individual photographer. Perhaps they may be inspired by physical reflections in water or glass or maybe by memories and recollections.

Digital cameras available to borrow

If you would like to use the photographic competition as an opportunity to include a photography session in your programme, then please get in touch. We have a number of digital cameras available for any group to borrow. They are available from the Creative Team.
