Karamea Photography Competition 2011

Karamea Community Arts Council LogoLast year’s inaugural local photography competition was a great success.
So we’re going to do it again, but with a slightly different twist!

This year the photographers will upload their submissions via the community Web site.

Also new this year, the public will vote on-line for their favourite photo in each category.
Photographers are invited to submit one (1) photo per category in any or each of the eight (8) categories.

All photos submitted will be displayed on the Karamea Community Web site.


  • Photo submissions must be uploaded from 1 April through 1 May.
  • On-line voting will take place from 2 May through 31 May.
  • Prize winners will be recognised on the Web site for their achievement.


  • On-line voting will use a ten (10) star guide, where 10 stars is best.
  • Voting will be anonymous. No one will be able to view the star awards on the Web site until after the voting period has closed and the voting completed.

*** Only entrants with a New Zealand postal address will be eligible to receive prizes. ***

Awards: Category Winners:

  • The photo receiving the most votes from each of the eight categories will be deemed the category winner.
  • Each category winner will receive $20.

Awards: Grand Prize:

  • The photo receiving the most votes will be deemed the overall competition winner.
  • Grand Prize winner will receive $80.

*** Only entrants with a New Zealand postal address will be eligible to receive prizes. ***

Photo Submissions:

  • Photos can be previously taken or newly taken. We hope people will get out there with their cameras during the months of March and April and go for it!
  • Old prints would need to be scanned into digital files, new photos will, no doubt, be digitally created.
  • However and wherever your photos originate they must be uploaded to the Web site as a digital image.


  • As mentioned, you are limited to submitting only one (1) photograph per person, per category.
  • Categories are:
    1) Happy  2) Water  3) Rainbows  4) Abstract  5) Family  6) Feet   7) Mountainbiking   8) Heaphy Track


  • One (1) submission only per person, per category, allowing for eight (8) submissions per person into the photography competition
  • The on-line submission form directions will step you through the process of uploading each of your submissions into the proper categories.
  • Photo files should be a maximum of 800x800 pixels and file size up to 2MB.
