Photo Competition

Epic Invercargill

A Council-run photographic competition – Epic Invercargill – offers local photographers the chance to showcase their work in the 2018 ICC City Calendar.

The competition will be split into three categories: Youth (under 18), Amateur and Professional. Four photos from each category will receive spots in the calendar, which is delivered to 30,000 Invercargill households.

Council Communications Manager Eirwen Harris Mitchell said the competition was a great way for local photographers to display their talents – and to celebrate their unique views of Invercargill.

“We wanted to provide a platform for our talented local photographers to reach all Invercargill and Bluff households,” Mrs Harris Mitchell said.

An exhibition will be organised by the Council’s City Centre Co-ordinator, Kari Graber, to display the entries. The winners will be announced before the calendars are delivered to homes in December.
