Jessops sponsor Scouts photography badgeJessops have announced their sponsorship of the Scout Associations' Photographer badge.

The badge is open to approximately 120,000 girls and boys aged between 10 1/2 and 14 years who are part of Scout Groups across the UK.

With the aim of encouraging young people to learn more about both traditional and digital photography, this activity badge covers areas such as composition, camera functions, processing and common faults.

To complete the badge, scouts are tested on a range of topics and must also produce a portfolio of 12 pictures. Scouts can also choose to focus on videography. As part of the sponsorship, Jessops has produced a range of resource material for both Scouts and their Leaders. Scouts, on completion, will receive special Jessops certificates, along with a Scout Photographer badge.

Natalie Spencer, Head of Fundraising and Sponsorship at The Scout Association said "The Photographer badge has always been one of the most popular of the 72 activity badges the Scouts can choose to participate in. We are sure that with Jessops support we can further increase interest in photography and help even more Scouts successfully complete the badge ".
