June 2020 sees the launch of the Lens Lockdown Challenge, a photography challenge where scouts and Scouters are asked to capture images of scouting during these unique times where the COVID-19 outbreak continues to confine most of us to our homes.  It is intended that these images will be lasting reminders of scouting during this time.  Each week a different photography theme (based on scouting) will be announced on the Scout Foundation public Facebook page. 

The theme will be announced each Monday morning and you have until the following Sunday to submit your photograph.  

Each week (after entries close on Sunday) a panel of judges will select their favourite photo for each section (Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Ventures, Rovers and Scouters) under the weekly theme.

At the end of the four week challenge a panel of judges will select the best overall photo (over all 4 weeks) for each section.  

Lockdown Lens Challenge - Week One

This is a four-week Provincial photography challenge.

Scouts and Scouters who take part and send in all four photographs (one for each weekly theme) will be awarded a unique Lens Lockdown Challenge 2020 badge and certificate. The badge will be a Special Events badge that can be worn on your uniform for one year.
