It’s that time of year again, where we celebrate the art, science & history of photography. This year we’re really excited to announce our second World Photography Day Competition!

Chosen Theme: ‘Long Exposure’

Submit your photos reflecting the theme provided, and stand a chance to WIN an Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark III Mirrorless Camera with 14-150mm Lens, worth $2,499!

The Nitty Gritty:

Long-exposure, time-exposure, or slow-shutter photography involves using a long-duration shutter speed. All photos submitted must reflect the given theme to be in with a chance of winning. Submitted photos can be taken with a DSLR, mirrorless, drone, smartphone – it just needs to be your original image!

Entry into the competition is limited to a maximum of 10 images per person. If more than 10 images are submitted by a single person, only the first 10 will be considered for the competition.

The competition is open to anyone residing in New Zealand. Submissions are open from the 17th to the 30th of August 2020, with the winner being announced on the 4th of September.
