What's happening in Central Otago

Arrowtown Photography Competition.

Region: Arrowtown
Dates: Thu, 30 January 2020 - Thu, 19 March 2020 @ Entries Open Now.

  • Arrowtown Photography Competition.

Entries are now open for the Arrowtown Photography Prize.

Cash prizes of more than $1500 are up for grabs for the best photos in the following categories: Architecture; Creative; Macro; Landscape; People; Nature; Action; and Junior (up to 15 years, open subject choice).

Judges will be looking for top-quality images but with today’s technology, it’s possible to take stunning photos with a phone or a relatively cheap camera. And to even the playing field further, you won’t be up against full-on professionals: you can only enter if you get less than 20 per cent of your income from photography.

Photographs must have been taken in the Arrowtown area bordered by the Crown Range, Shotover River and Gibbston no earlier than January 2019. Selected photos will be printed and displayed in the museum foyer during the Arrowtown Autumn Festival 16 to 20 April 2020, and winners will be announced at a special function.

The competition opens on the 30th of January 2020 and closes at midnight March 19th, 2020. These times and dates are strictly adhered to.
