Shoot Out 2020 Camera

Why enter?

This is your chance to step out from behind your nail desk and test your ability to create a stunning image that combines a creative concept, camera skills and a striking nail design.

Your entry will require a professional finish, so consider assembling a team consisting of a photographer, model, make-up artist and hair stylist.

Staging your own photo shoot will give you an insight into a world away from daily tekking, and bringing a concept to life through planning and execution will see you challenge yourself in a variety of areas.

The photos you produce can help build your portfolio; ideal for attracting new clients and career opportunities and brightening up your website, social media or salon space.


As always, the theme is open!

We at Scratch want to see your originality and skills shine. Simply keep the nails as the focus of your final image and let your creativity flow.

Your nail design and work should be the focus of your final entry.
