Launch of our Photographic Competition

Date: 20th May 2023 Author: Guy Diprose

Photographic Competition

We are inviting local young people to take part in our photographic competition, for a chance to win a brand new Black Diamond Cosmo LED headlamp – perfect for those camping trips.

Visitors to our stall at the Eastwick School Fair on Saturday 20th May will be able to make a woggle and ‘necker’ to take home for their favourite soft toy.

We ask that entrants take a photo of their soft toy wearing their ‘necker’.  Our judges will be looking for creative poses – perhaps your soft toy could be pictured doing a typical Scouting activity?

To provide some inspiration, a few pictures of some of our soft toys are in our gallery here.


Please send a copy of your favourite photos (up to three per individual) by email to, stating the name and age of the entrant.  We would also love to know the name of your soft toy if they have one!

We cannot accept photos of the young people themselves, so just pictures of the soft toys please!  We hope to display a range of the entries on our website.

The closing date for entries will be 10pm Sunday 4th June and the winner will be announced on our website shortly after.

Happy snapping!
