There are four categories: 13 years and under, 19 years and under, adult and a Groups prize for the best school class, club or youth club. Prizes include trips to photograph dance in Fiji, Samoa, Egypt and Tenerife, while the group winner will be awarded fantastic photographic kit. Dance Today will publish the winners, whose images will also be displayed at City Hall during the Olympics, courtesy of Big Dance.
Workshops for competitors will be held throughout the UK. Keep an eye on the website dpoty.com. If you’d like to get involved in the competition (which doesn’t preclude you from entering) please contact Carole Edrich at DANCEpoty@gmail.com.
