A Wildlife Photography Masterclass in Zambia, Africa!
If you're crowned National Geographic Kids' Young Photographer of the Year, you'll be in for a treat! You and your family will be whisked off to Zambia, in southern Africa, on an awe-inspiring, eight-night photographic adventure!
During this trip of a lifetime, you’ll spend five nights at the beautiful Mfuwe Lodge, a secluded camp run by the Bushcamp Company in Zambia's beautiful South Luangwa National Park, where you'll be guaranteed a jaw-dropping wildlife experience in one of Africa’s last unspoilt wildernesses.
Award-winning wildlife photographer Sue Flood will join you on safari, showing you how to capture breathtaking images of lions, leopards, elephants and giraffes. And with Sue as your teacher, you’re guaranteed to take pictures that will live with you forever!
Then after your stay at Mfuwe, you’ll fly to Livingstone, from where you’ll be whisked off to the exclusive Islands of Siankaba, a luxury lodge located on two private islands in the middle of the mighty Zambezi River. You'll spend three nights at the lodge, situated between the 'Seventh Wonder of the Natural World' — the magnificent Victoria Falls — and the stunning Chobe National Park in Botswana. It's out of this world!
And check this bit out - The overall winner AND the three runners-up will all walk away with an awesome Canon EOS 100D camera, Canon s latest DSLR, worth £500!
The smallest and lightest DSLR camera in the world, Canon's EOS 100D shoots both 18 megapixel photos and full-HD video, and it allows you to take fantastic photos even in poor light. What a prize!
And that’s not all! Our grand prize winner will also receive an XXL photo book, photo mug and T-shirt from Snapfish, so they can re-live their trip to Zambia over and over again! The three category winners will get a medium photo book featuring their favourite pictures, while the next ten runners-up will walk off with their very own set of four-photo posters from Snapfish featuring their super snaps! All winners and runners-up will be contacted by Snapfish with information on how to get their photo gifts!
