Students from Coulsdon College, Trinity School and Riddlesdown are among those who have taken part.
Prizes include a day's photoshoot with Advertiser snapper David Cook and a portrait opportunity with the Mayor of Croydon in The Mayor's Parlour, accompanied by Desmond Wright of Beaumont Wright Photography.

The theme for this year's competition is 'Life Cycle', with 36 entrants ranging from 13 to 18-years-old.
Describing some of the pictures, Graham Upton, from the Rotary Club of Croydon South, said: "There's a boy sitting on a gravestone and there's a picture of a pregnant lady being comforted by her partner.
"And there's some photographs of flowers – some that are wilting and dying and others that are budding and coming to life.
"So there's a wide interpretation of the theme. The theme was selected to give people a chance to use their imagination."
The entries are available for people to view at The Dene Restaurant, attached to Knights Garden Centre in Warlingham.
And the prize winners will be divided into two categories, over 17 and under 17.
The public have also been casting their votes for their favourite to win the People's Choice award, with prizes including vouchers for Snappy Snaps and McDermott's Fish and Chips in Forestdale.
The prize-giving ceremony will be held at The Dene on Thursday, May 3 at 5.45pm when the winners will be announced.
Members of the public can still vote on the People's Choice award until May 1, by putting a voting slip in the box on display at The Dene.
Last year's competition was based on the theme 'My Life'. Coulsdon College student Rhiannon Pumphrey, 18, won the over 17's category and Oliver Gilbert, from Whitgift School, won the under-17s category.
