PoTY logo.png (56 KB)New Zealand Geographic is inviting amateurs, professionals and students alike to demonstrate their skills with a camera in the country’s most prestigious photographic competition. $6000 in cash is up for grabs. Start snapping.

CATEGORIES
Three main categories showcase the extraordinary natural and cultural riches that make New Zealand unique. The New Zealand Geographic Photographer of the Year, sponsored by Nikon, will be picked from these entrants, as will the Young Photographer award, sponsored by Getty Images (for entrants under the age of 21 on Sept 30, 2010). All photos must have been shot after Sept 30, 2007, and within New Zealand territory—including New Zealand-administered Pacific and Antarctic dependencies.

WILDLIFE sponsored by Lowepro
Capture an animal or groups of animals in their natural environment. We are looking for images which exude life and show the behaviour or adaptations which make it unique.

LANDSCAPE sponsored by BioPaints
Showcase the wonders of New Zealand, its mountains, wetlands, coasts and plains. The judges will be looking for attention to light and drama.

SOCIETY & CULTURE sponsored by Auckland Airport
This category celebrates the traditions and relationships of all New Zealanders. The winning entry will be an image that captures our identity as a people.
