Eyeballnz Seeks Photos for Website
13 November 2009
New Zealand’s ultimate travel planner eyeballnz.com wants your help in showcasing New Zealand to the world.
Whether photography is your profession or your passion, send in your digital pics that best capture your home town or favourite spot and be in to win a Panasonic Lumix camera package worth $800. The winner will also have their photo featured on the eyeballnz website and get an enlarged archival quality print for themselves.
“Our website photos celebrate heartland New Zealand,” website co-founder Steve Bicknell says, “People can see these aren’t the standard stock shots. Many of our most interesting photos are off the tourist track. Now we want the whole of New Zealand to get involved. So we’re calling for people to send their favourite pics to us so we can share their images with the world.”
Launched eight weeks ago, eyeballnz.com has already had 12,000 visits to the site. The website is allowing browsers to explore New Zealand in a whole new way. They can plan a journey, build an itinerary and find travel and accommodation information.
The website is a result of fifteen months on the road, 95 hours aboard a Polish Wilga 35a plane and 16,000 photos.
For two years, co-creators Penny and Steve Bicknell flew, motorhomed and photographed the length of New Zealand, capturing the best of Aotearoa with their two dogs, a professional digital camera and a hefty dose of determination.
Eyeballnz is a profile of their extraordinary journey and now they want to profile yours, and are offering a fantastic camera package in return.
The online competition is free to enter and open to New Zealand and overseas entrants. Just fill out the entry form onsite and upload your image(s) by 31 January 2010.
Second and third prize winners will receive an enlarged archival quality print of their entries which will feature on the site along with the winning entry.
