Winning photo your choice
The winners of this year’s Guardians of Pauatahanui Inlet photo competition have been rewarded – but which picture do you like the best?
On this page you can see the best of this year’s Guardians of Pauatahanui Inlet photo competition – but which is the best of the best?
As we did in 2011, Kapi-mana News is holding a Readers Choice Poll.
We want you, the reader, to tell us which of the four main category winners do you think is the best. Do you favour Helen Westerbeke’s well-timed Nature category winner? Keith Harrison’s cracking cricketing shot, which topped Recreation? Susan Whelan’s evocative landscape (Artistic)? Or are you stuck on Emily Smith’s example of Human Impact?
The photographer whose picture garners the most votes will have their winning entry converted to canvas by Stellar Creations, a prize valued at $200.
We recognise voting takes some talent as well, so upon casting a vote readers will also enter a draw to win a 10-trip movie pass courtesy of Light House Pauatahanui cinema.
Now get voting! Simply email editor@ kmananews.co.nz and tell us which of the four winning photographs, pictured on this page, deserves an extra accolade: Recreation, Nature, Human Impact or Scenic Impressions? Make sure you include your name and contact details. Voting closes 5pm, May 21.
The four photographs can also be viewed in all their digital glory at our website and Facebook page, or viewed at Palmers Lifestyle Centre (May 10 to 24), Whitby Mall (May 25 to June 8), and Light House Pauatahanui (June 9 to 22).
Nature: Timing is everything, as Helen Westerbeke found out when she snapped this in-flight conversation.
Recreation: The simple joy and nostalgia of beach cricket, as captured by Keith Harrison.
