Coromandel Peninsula Youth Photography Competition.

By Karen Moffatt-McLeod.

By Karen Moffatt-McLeod

We are announcing a photography competition specifically for youth, and even better, youth on the Coromandel Peninsula.

As a photographer I want to engage with youth who are involved in, or interested in photography by way of running a Youth Photography Awards & Exhibition for anyone under 18 who lives on the Coromandel Peninsula.

For those who don’t have cameras, most have a phone capable of capturing an image, therefore making this accessible for the majority of youth in our community. I have long felt that most of the photography competitions run nationally lack a specific youth focus or category. There are a number of very talented youth involved in the arts on the Coromandel Peninsula and I would love to see their views.

Entry is free to those under 18 on 30 November 2023 and live on the Coromandel Peninsula.

Images entered must be taken in 2023.

Two Themes: Portrait and My Street / My Community

Two Age groups: 11 years & Under; 12 – 17 years

Entries will open on 1 October 2023 and close on 30 November 2023

We have a wealth of experience and knowledge in portrait and street photography with our three judges: Shelley Harvey, BPSA, Lia Priemus, Karen Moffatt-McLeod, APSNZ.”

The Top Three in each category and each age group will have their images printed and exhibited (Venue TBC). There will also be an online presentation of the entries available for viewing so everyone can see the entries.

Prizes requested: We would love to be able to offer some prizes. If there are any sponsors out there who would consider donating a worthy prize, please contact
