  • Cake(s) to be decorated on a Scout/Guide ‘Outdoor Adventure’ theme

Entries will be judged in the various sections from Rainbows and Beavers through to Leaders and Active Support/Trefoil Guild.

As a change from previous years we will be happy to receive entries up to the end of each season (so for Spring please submit the entries by the end of June), we will publish the best from each season on the relevant County website and then hold them over for eventual winners at the end of the year.

Submissions must be in digital jpg format, entries taken on camera phones will be accepted.

All photographs must be submitted with the name of the photographer, section (Beaver, Brownie etc.), Scout or Guide group, District plus Guide County details, an email and postal contact (to receive a certificate) and confirmation that the photograph(s) is all the entrant’s own work. The entries will be judged in the appropriate section, all judging will be anonymous and the decisions of the judges will be final.
