New Rural Photography Award

Press Release:
New Rural Photography Award
September 14, 2006.

An award recognising the importance of photography in news coverage of agricultural and rural activities has been established by the New Zealand Guild of Agricultural Journalists and Communicators, with the sponsorship of Federated Farmers of New Zealand.

The award offers a prize of $750 for the best news photography published in the 12 months to 31 August 2006, and can be for any photograph appearing in a news paper or magazine.

It can illustrate any rural event or activity –agricultural, horticultural, industry, human interest, on farm / off farm, or any activity reflecting life or work in rural New Zealand.

Guild president Neville Martin says the new photographic award is an important addition to the guild’s portfolio of journalism-focused awards, and recognises that quality photographs are an increasingly important feature of today’s newspapers and magazines.

“The award is open to any news photographers, photo-journalists and journalists around New Zealand, not just to guild members,” he said.

“There have been some great photographs published in a wide range of rural publications over the past year, and the Guild anticipates that the award will attract some excellent entries.”

Federated Farmers president Charlie Pedersen said the sponsorship establishes a strong bond with the guild which focuses on encouraging excellence in coverage of events of major importance to the rural sector.

“Our members rely heavily on the accuracy and integrity of coverage of on-farm and off-farm events, and we are delighted be part of that,” he said.
