The Town Belt Photo Competition 2018

Town Belt Kaitiaki School Photo Challenge

Students – take a creative photo of the Dunedin Town Belt and be in to win one of two digital cameras!

To celebrate the first year of the student-led Town Belt Kaitiaki education initiative and the 130th anniversary of the Dunedin Amenities Society, we are giving school students around Dunedin the opportunity to showcase their photographic talent.

  • Take a photo in the Dunedin Town Belt and enter it in one of two student age categories: juniors (5 – 12 years) or seniors (13 – 18 years).
  • The photo can be of anything in the Town Belt – a beautiful sunset, wildlife, people walking their dog, picking up rubbish… as long as it was taken in the Town Belt
  • The senior prize is a DSLR with exchangeable lenses, and the winning junior entry gets a high quality point and shoot camera.

Competition winners will be announced at a prize-giving in October, and the top 10 photos from each age category will be part of a mobile exhibition.

This competition is run by the Town Belt Kaitiaki student leadership team in partnership with Dunedin Amenities Society and with support of the Town Belt Kaitiaki education coordinator.
