Ever wanted to get your hands on the Leica SL, the company’s first ever full-frame mirrorless camera, to test it out for yourself? Now is your chance.

On Saturday 5 November 2016, from 10am to 4pm, Leica will be hosting a special Akademie workshop in its iconic London Mayfair location, with places for six lucky Pocket-lint competition winners to sample the SL in a creative workshop environment.

With an assignment set by Akademie Tutor, Robin Sinha, you’ll get the opportunity to experience the mirrorless camera, plus Leica’s legendary lenses, under expert tuition.

This free-to-enter competition - which would typically cost £195 for the day - is open to all UK residents, whether a Leica user or not. It’s your chance to experience first-hand why the German camera-maker is internationally renowned.

Refreshments will be provided on arrival, as will a buffet lunch in the Leica Cafe, after which there will be a photo critique to discuss your images and the camera, followed by a personal visit to the Leica Store Mayfair.

For your chance to win this one-off experience opportunity, correctly answer this simple question. Winners will be drawn on Thursday 27 October and alerted by email.
