Trip to Paris on the line for best pho­tog­ra­pher

The Tribune (NZ) - - NEWS - RICHARD MAYS

If an all-ex­penses paid week-long stay in the City of Light sounds en­tic­ing, grab a cam­era. An in­ter­na­tional photo com­pe­ti­tion with Gay Pa­ree as the grand prize is open to lo­cal am­a­teur pho­tog­ra­phers for the sec­ond time.

Spon­sored by Al­liance Fran­caise, the theme of last year’s com­pe­ti­tion was ‘Cli­mate, State of emer­gency’. This year it is ‘Ob­jec­tif sport’

Soizic Le­grand from Al­liance Fran­caise says the sport­ing themed com­pe­ti­tion is open to all adult am­a­teur pho­tog­ra­phers, and can in­clude stu­dents. En­trants are in­vited to sub­mit one en­try of two sports re­lated images by May 6.

En­tries will be as­sessed by a lo­cal jury with se­nior UCOL pho­tog­ra­phy lec­turer Ian Rother­ham, Is­abelle Poff-Pen­cole from Al­liance Fran­caise, Manawatu Stan­dard pho­tog­ra­pher War­wick Smith, and pro­fes­sional pho­tog­ra­pher Bernadette Peters.

Par­tic­i­pa­tion is free with en­try avail­able from Al­liance Fran­caise in Square Edge, at info@ french.org.nz, and by phon­ing 560 0749.

The lo­cal win­ner will be for­warded to the Fon­da­tion Al­liance Franc¸aise in Paris to be judged along­side the other in­ter­na­tional en­tries. The over­all win­ner in Paris gets the trip.
