Creative minds asked to consider ‘creating energy’

Mighty River Power asks creative minds to consider ‘creating energy’

Mighty River Power’s third Photographic Competition aims to generate some creative thinking from entrants with its new theme of ‘creating energy’.

Following on from the success of the last two years, the 2004 competition will be launched early this month, offering secondary and tertiary students and non-professional photographers the chance to take a share of a $13,000 prize pool.

General Manager External Affairs Neil Williams says he hopes the new theme will provide fresh inspiration for photographers who have in past years been asked to capture some aspect of the Taupo/Waikato region.

“There were impressive entries exploring this theme and we hope entrants will think outside the square and consider how they can demonstrate creating energy for this year’s competition.

“We’ve also received a considerable amount of interest from photographers outside our traditional generation area and we want to continue to encourage this by increasing the geographical boundaries of the competition to include the Northland and Bay of Plenty regions.

Schools, tertiary institutes, photography clubs and public information offices can expect to receive promotional material in the next few weeks and entry forms will also be available in local papers and on Mighty River Power’s website.

The competition will again consist of three sections – Secondary, Tertiary, and Non-Professional. Entrants can enter up to four photographs under one of four themes including Documentary, Contemporary Art, Landscape or Portraiture.

The judging panel remains the same comprising professional photographers Patrick Reynolds and Natalie Robertson, Freelance curator John Hurrell and Taupo Art Museum’s Karen Williams.

Mighty River Power will also be offering photography teachers and lecturers the chance to bring a special guest speaker into their classroom to provide students with an insight into photography as a career and tips on how best to prepare their entries.
