The Great Outdoors Summer Events photo competition

2 April 2014

The Great Outdoors Summer Events photo competition – you be the judge

Now is the time to have your say on some of the best photos taken this summer. Five finalists have been found in the Greater Wellington Regional Council Great Outdoors Summer Events photo competition, and it’s up to you to choose the overall winner.

With more than 150 entries from more than 40 photographers, the council’s judges scratched their heads, debated long and hard and said goodbye to some great pics to reach a short list of five outstanding entries.

They’ve seen shots of sunsets and shags and glow worms and gullies, and just about everything in between that show the fun to be had in our fantastic regional parks.

It is hoped that, through these images, more people will be attracted to visit Wellington’s wild and wonderful places.

How you can vote
Voting is easy and closes at 12 am on Monday 14 April. All you have to do is go to our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/GreaterWellington click the “like” button on your favourite photo, the votes will be tallied and the one with the most “likes” will win. The winner and two runners-up will be announced on Greater Wellington Regional Council’s Facebook page on Monday 14 April.

The successful entries will receive some cool prizes:

1st Prize
A trekking pack from Dwights Outdoors, your choice of two Regional Parks t-shirts, a range of books about the environment and two Greater Wellington Regional Council bottles.

2nd Prize
A trekking pack from Dwights Outdoors, your choice of two Regional Parks t-shirts, a range of books about the environment and two Greater Wellington Regional Council bottles.

3rd Prize
Your choice of two Regional Parks t-shirt and two Greater Wellington Regional Council drink bottles.

The winning photo will be placed as main background photo on Greater Wellington Regional Council Facebook page and may be used in advertising and on map boards/brochures.
