In­let to give in­spi­ra­tion

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

Dust off your cam­eras and head for the shore – the 2013 Guardians of Pau­ata­hanui In­let photo com­pe­ti­tion is open for en­tries.

The event, now in its 13th year, is open to all ages, with spe­cial prizes for younger pho­tog­ra­phers.

‘‘ The Pau­ata­hanui In­let is recog­nised for its high eco­log­i­cal, aes­thetic, recre­ational and cul­tural val­ues, and our photo com­pe­ti­tion gives peo­ple the op­por­tu­nity to cel­e­brate any or all of those as­pects,’’ says Guardians chair­man John Wells.

Cat­e­gories are Na­ture, Recre­ation and Hu­man Im­pact, and a spe­cial Artis­tic sec­tion for those who want to use pho­to­shop wiz­ardry to ma­nip­u­late their im­ages.

‘‘This year we’ve again re­ceived great spon­sor­ship from Porirua busi­nesses and we’ve got some en­tic­ing prizes,’’ Dr Wells says.

One win­ner will have the chance to learn to pad­dle board on the in­let, while an­other will en­joy the thrill of the Adrenalin For­est. There are cash prizes and vouch­ers for a host of goods and ser­vices.

Stella Creations is a ma­jor spon­sor this year, as is Har­vey Norman, which has again of­fered to print all en­tries at no charge.

Kapi- Mana News will run a Read­ers’ Choice poll of the four main cat­e­gory win­ners through our web­site and print edi­tion. En­tries close on April 8. De­tails and en­try forms can be found at Pataka and lo­cal li­braries, as well as on the Guardians’ web­site: www. gopi.
