Your photo could win!
With $10,000 up for grabs, entries are flooding in for the Trustpower Photographic Competition, now in its third year.
The exhibition calls for entries to the theme of ‘Finding Beauty’ and Mainstreet Tauranga spokesperson Sally Cooke says the theme is attracting some amazing and diverse entries.
“We’re asking photographers, from amateur to professional, to find and capture moments of beauty.
“They may find them in the most unexpected places and moments, and the moment they capture might just be the one that wins them a place in the Trustpower Photographic Exhibition.”
Sally says with the lure of the $10,000 in cash prizes and entries open across New Zealand, they are expecting to top last year’s record number of entries. “With entries closing on January 10, there’s still time for people to find some amazing photos to submit.”
The exhibition is believed to be New Zealand’s largest outdoor photographic exhibition when it opens on The Strand walkway on January 25. “Every year we get so much amazing feedback. People just love it. It lights up The Strand and the city centre, and becomes a tourist and visitor attraction for the city centre.
“It is a privilege for us to host it in Tauranga, and this time we look forward to some amazing photographs from around the world, to inspire and delight those who see it.”
Judges will select the top 20 winning entries to appear in next year’s 11-week exhibition on The Strand. The top three will take out $5000 for first place, $3000 for second place and $2000 for third place. Entries remain open until January 10. For full details, visit: www.downtowntauranga.co.nz
