Hey New Photographers!  This one's for you.  We introduced a more budget friendly accommodation option for SNAP this year and it sold out almost straight away.  Since then we've had a whole load of newer wedding photographers who haven't been at this for all that long getting in touch with us to say how bummed they are that they missed out, which got us thinking.

We've always wanted to find a way to give back to the photography community and that's why we do a whole load of things like run our SNAP's Got Talent competition.  We'd really like to help out newer photographers though.  If the newer end of the industry is elevated and supported, it raises the standard for all of us.

Because of this we're designating 10 discounted tickets for newcomers to the industry and we're allocating these places by ballot.  Tickets will be an equivalent price to our budget accommodation option (Group Tents, at £899) and spaces will be randomly allocated (ensuring you're in same sex accommodation if required) across our Camp Shacks, Bell Tents and Domes.  This means you'll save up to £450 off the price of your ticket!
