Two Pathways at this Point

DIY or Click Happy Plus

For DIY you can carry on at your own pace doing the 20 more challenges.  By the time you are done you will have an impressive portfolio of your work. And you will have 25 chances to have your images featured in the final book/exhibition.

Or you can submit your Portfolio to Click Happy Plus where it is now with at least 5 challenge images contained within it.   Click Happy Plus is kind of like a Rep League but for young serious photographers and you will be mentored by Mandi Lynn.  There are scholarships available for kids who live in the Hutt Valley, Wellington, South Auckland, and Hamilton.

Also keep an eye out on the Facebook feed or the Instagram page for one of your images being shown.
