What an amazing opportunity for an up-and-coming eco brand.

CHS, the full-service independent agency, has launched a competition with the winner receiving £10,000-worth of photography.

The award, called ‘CHS Exposure’, aims to celebrate the products and services ‘making waves’ in their respective sectors.

Launched in line with World Earth Day 2022, the first of the series seeks an eco brand which promotes a greener way of living or helps consumers make more environmentally-friendly choices.

Full details can be seen in a video here.

Chris Southgate, CHS Managing Director, pictured left, said: “We have the privilege of working with some of the nation’s largest and most established brands.

“But the CHS Exposure Award is our opportunity to do something for the smaller, newer businesses just starting out on their journey.

“A greener future is so important to us all.

“We’re making huge strides in our own agency and have the ambition to be net zero by 2030. 

“But we know that we’re a small piece of the puzzle overall.

“That’s why we’re looking to help a business dedicated to helping others reduce their carbon footprint.

“All great ideas need a launchpad and having strong photographic assets is often a huge blocker at the beginning of any venture.

“The CHS Exposure Award is an unmissable opportunity for anyone looking to help get their business off the ground.

“We can’t wait to see what amazing brands and products are pitched to us.”

To enter, business owners need to record a one-minute video explaining why their business is the next ‘big green idea’ and what the prize will help them achieve for the year ahead.

The judging panel will be looking for particular evidence that demonstrates the need, longevity and innovation of the product or service.

The lucky winner will receive photography and styling expertise and the use of one of the agency’s onsite studio spaces, for a photography shoot.

To submit your entry, or find out more, visit by no later than midnight on May 22.

The winner will be announced by June 1.

CHS is a creative marketing agency based in Christchurch and employing more than 60 people.

Services provided include catalogue production, strategic planning, branding and integrated campaigns that combine videography, photography, direct marketing, web design and advertising.

The competition is only open to small to medium sized businesses trading as limited companies registered in England, Wales or Scotland, with a maximum of 15 employees and a maximum turnover of £1m.
