The Far North Environment Centre is proud to launch a unique environmental photographic competition:

Far North Exposure, Our Environment through the Lens

The photo competition is a celebration of the environment and the arts, connecting our schools and communities with inspiring imagery of environmental issues of our time and in our district.

The competition theme is simple: "The power of a photo: Our Far North Environment". A picture is worth a thousand words, so the winning photos may be a simple landscape, a detail of our natural world, or an image that reveals an aspect of human impact on our environment. It is your vision and image, so we will leave it to your imagination.

Far North Exposure is divided into four age categories, and a Category Winner will be selected from each of the categories. Each of the Category Winners will win one of four Nikon Coolpix L16 digital cameras. So they can enjoy using their new camera in our amazing environment, each Category Winner will also win seven nights of camping for a family of five at a Far North Department of Conservation campsite.

One Grand Prize Winner will be selected from the Category Winners. The Grand Prize Winner will also be able to use a $100 gift voucher to select from the fantastic range of native plants and gardening products available from the Trees Company nursery.

Entry is free and the competition opened today (26th February), so get out there and start snapping! You can enter up to four photos, and each photo needs to have been taken within the Far North District, between 26th February 2009 and 1st May 2009. Entries must be received by 4pm on 1st May 2009. For more information on how to enter Far North Exposure check out the Far North Environment Centre's website (www.ecocentre.co.nz/whatson/photo/), pop into the Environment Centre at 190 Pukepoto Road in Kaitaia, or call 09 408 1086. Digital photos can be submitted by email to: photo@ecocentre.co.nz

The winning and runner up photos from Far north Exposure will be exhibited at a number of events around the Far North as a way of celebrating World Environment Day (5th June).

Far North Exposure would not be possible without the kind support of the Department of Conservation, Far North District Council, More FM, Top Print, and Trees Company.
