Photo competition

Our Annual competition closes this year on October 6th.

Entries must be supplied by the closing date in digital form. Our categories are in alignment with those of FMC
1.    Above bushline with no human element    2. Or with a human element
3.    Below bushline with no human element    4. Or with a human element
5.    Historic                                                       6. Native flora and fauna
7.    Long exposure -  This category is intended for those taken in extremely low light situations such as caves or canyons, at night-time. A great opportunity for the technically minded photographer.

We also have the 2 WTC categories of:
8.     Club Character – features a humorous subject which has a club context.
9.   International. Caters for photos which are otherwise ineligible for the FMC photo competition.

FMC has an annual theme to the competition, which encourages photography that documents topical places which we are fighting for, current campaigns we’re battling and values under immediate threat. The theme in no way restricts entries, it merely offers a little reward for entries consistent with the theme! Last  years’ theme was based on the mighty
river-carved stewardship lands of the South Island’s West Coast. This year any image taken within the boundaries of the proposed park is eligible.

A. Definition of a “human element”
The definition of a “human element” is flexible but the general intention is: Where the photo contains anything other than as a very minor feature: people, a hut, a track sign/marker, bridge, ice axe and anything else that has been introduced by humans into the environment then we would define that as having “a Human element”. But if a photo has what could be called a Human Element but that element is very small, inconsequential and not a feature in the photo then you could count it as “No Human Element”.
B. Entries for the FMC aligned categories must be taken after 1 Jan 2016.
Any photos taken prior to this date will automatically be entered into the historic category.
C. Definition of “historic”
The intention for the historic category is for entrants to go back through club and individual archives to select “old photos” rather than “photos of old things”.  As an example, a recent photo of a hut built in the 1950’s is not a ‘historic’ photo. However, a photo of the same hut taken in the 1960’s certainly is a ‘historic’ photo.  Photos for the historic category must be taken before 1 Jan 2016.
D. All photos apart from the International Category must be taken within New Zealand, which is defined as within our Exclusive Economic Zone. This includes the following islands; North, South, Stewart, Chatham, Kermadec, Sub-Antarctic.

Our photos will be judged by an independent photographer and results presented at the November Club Night.
