The winner will also receive 1 year of education and creative guidance from world leading academy Allilon plus one-to-one sessions with Denman Ambassadors! And that's not all… the winner will also get to work with the Denman team on their creative shoots, attend prestigious industry events and gala dinners, work on product development and of course receive a comprehensive set of all Denman products and tools!
