A schoolmate was one of eight finalists, her teacher (my teacher too) asked me to come along to snap some shots. The man responsible for the national finale organisation liked the shots and was happy to have them posted on the BBC Awards website. Plus, he asked me to come back next year!
Anyway, it is a very formal event, most men are dressed up nicely, and even though the hired photographer from this year came in casual clothes, it seems more appropriate to wear something that suits the event.
You could also get a fancy looking shirt embroidered with a logo and website address, instead of a polo. Get a good looking name tag to wear on your suit jacket and you still have some marketing for youself...
