Big Prizes Announced for Rally Photo Competition

Organisers of the Dunlop Rallyfeste weekend, (March 23rd - 25th 2007) announce they are running a Photo Competition culminating in the production of a 12 month souvenir calendar, as part of their celebrations of four decades of Rallying in New Zealand.

The winners of the competition can look forward to some very significant prizes, thanks to donors, NZ Rally Tours Ltd and Rally Drive NZ Ltd. The winning photographer will receive a comprehensive 2007 WRC Rally New Zealand Tour, second place will receive a 2007 International Rally of Rotorua Tour, and third place a one day Rally Drive NZ Ltd experience.

Dunlop Rallyfeste chairman Laurie Brenssell said “We are looking to involve as many people as possible in the celebration of this event, and right now we are asking enthusiasts who have taken photographs over the past four decades, to enter them in this competition. We know there are thousands of photos out there, and we hope people will share them with other enthusiasts, and in the process win fabulous prizes.”

Organisers are of course looking beyond the professional magazine photographers, to more amateur people, someone who just might have that shot which portrays the rally atmosphere taken at any time over the past four decades.

Photographs can be entered in the competition, which runs until the end of October, by filling out the entry form attached or visiting the Rallyfeste website.

The Dunlop Ruby Rallyfeste weekend will take the form of a reunion of competitors and enthusiasts from the past four decades of New Zealand Rallying. The weekend’s celebrations will include a competitive special stage rally “event”, and a reunion “function” including photo and memorabilia displays and a dinner.
