ABOUT THE COMPETITION

The Trustpower Photographic Competition challenges amateur and professional photographers across New Zealand to share moments of beauty. This year, we are asking 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 the theme of Finding Beauty, as chosen by a judging panel, and will ultimately comprise the 2019 Trustpower Photographic Exhibition taking place in downtown Tauranga 26 January - 14 April.
