2019 Trustpower Photographic Exhibition

From 3690 competition entries (a record number!) our judges now have the difficult task of selecting the top 20 images which will make up the third annual Trustpower Photographic Exhibition!

THE COMPETITION

The competition challenged amateur and professional photographers across New Zealand to share moments of beauty. This year, we asked entrants to submit their photos under one overarching theme: Finding Beauty.

Where do you find beauty? Do you see it in special moments, places or people? A moment of beauty can sometimes be found in the most unexpected places and times. Even in the depths of despair or destruction, when we look, we can find elements of beauty.

The winning entries will be the photos that best celebrate this theme, as chosen by our judging panel, and will be revealed when the 2019 Trustpower Photographic Exhibition opens in downtown Tauranga on 26 January.

PRIZES

Along with having their image featured in the 2019 Trustpower Photographic Exhibition, winning photographers will also receive:

  • 1st place: $5000 cash plus their winning photograph in a Weekend Sun photo feature and profiled in an UNO. Magazine feature on the exhibition.
