Your chance to shoot the Stuff Gadget Awards

Point your lens in the direction of the red carpet. You could soon be snapping the best tech on Earth

Ever dreamed of being a member of the paparazzi pack? Or rubbing shoulders with the great and good of the technology industry?

Stuff has teamed up with Canon to give three lucky Stuff readers the chance to fulfill both these lofty ambitions in one evening. Not only will you get to attend the glittering Stuff Gadget Awards 2011 bash, you’ll be documenting the highs with Canon’s 12.1MP IXUS 220 HS.

The pictures you snap at the Oscars of tech will appear on and in the pages of Stuff, the world’s biggest-selling gadget magazine, as part of a Canon promotion.

You’ll be using the Canon IXUS 220 HS to snap away at the stage as Stuff hands out 20 gongs to the glitterati of the gadget industry, recording the evening’s triumphs for posterity.

We’re arming three lucky winners with a Canon IXUS 220 HS camera, perfect for snapping in low-light conditions such as an awards dinner and you’ll have a Stuff photography expert on hand to help out with a few useful hints and tips.

The awards take place on the evening of Wednesday, November 2nd in Central London, so you’ll need to be free that day. We will cover your travel expenses and you’ll have dinner with the rest of the guests at the five-star ceremony.
