We Are DofE Photo Competition

Remember your first night under the stars? The first time you used a camp stove? And of course the friends who stood by your side?

As we celebrate 60 years of life-changing work with young people around the world, we’d like to see what We Are DofE means to you. Submit a photo of your best DofE experience or one that shows what it’s really like to be part of the DofE. We’re looking for creative, quirky or distinctive shots. Entry is open until midnight 14 November.


Once the competition ends, shortlisted photos will be shared with the world and publically exhibited at Heathrow Airport in T5. The first prize winner will go home with a Canon EOS 1300D and a very special photography work experience prize. Second and third prize winners will receive a Canon PowerShot SX620 HS.

So submit your best DofE photos today – there’s no limit to the number of photos you can enter – and be sure to check back on 15 November when public voting begins. Best of luck!
