Magazine seeks snap happy happy snappers, offers fame, glory and cold hard cash

Rate yourself as a bit of a photographer? Then get your favourite snaps in front of the judges for the New Zealand Geographic photographer of the year competition and you could be the envy of all your camera-wielding friends.

It's good timing for the call for entries announcement, too: New Zealand Geographic was named winner of the Best Use of Photography at the 2010 Magazine Awards and editor and convenor of judges for the competition, James Frankham, took out editor of the year in the General Interest & Entertainment category. So there's plenty of photographic expertise among the judges—and plenty of mana to be taken away by the victors.

This is the second year of the competition, with Tobias Bernhard judged New Zealand Geographic Photographer of the Year for the inaugural award and James Blackwood, chief executive and executive creative director of bcg², the newly merged combination of Blackwood Communication Group and Grey Global Group, coming second.

Amateurs or professional photographers can enter and there are three categories in the 2010 awards, each offering $1000 in cash and other prizes:

  • Wildlife (sponsored by Lowepro)

  • Landscape (sponsored by BioPaints)

  • Society and Culture (sponsored by Auckland Airport)

The New Zealand Geographic Young Photographer of the Year, which is sponsored by Getty Images, will be awarded $1000 cash and mentoring and coaching as part of the New Zealand Geographic Trust Young Guns programme (entrants under 21 years on September 30, 2010 are eligible).

The overall New Zealand Geographic Photographer of the Year 2010, sponsored by Nikon, will win $2000 cash and be offered a creative contract with Getty Images, and the winners will be announced in the November/December issue of the magazine.

Entries are free and close Tuesday 21 September, 2010. For more details and to enter, see the New Zealand Geographic July/August issue, which is on sale 5 July, or visit
