    Photos submitted for the 2019 WTMC competition will be judged by Grant Newton on Wednesday 28 August 2019 at the usual club night time of 7:30 pm.

    So – all of you who take photos of NZ mountain scenery and other NZ outdoor related activities are invited to send the best results of your efforts to before 31 July 2019.

    You can submit a maximum of 2 photos in each of the following categories:

    ABOVE BUSHLINE (With no Human Element*)
    ABOVE BUSHLINE (With a Human Element*)
    BELOW BUSHLINE (With no Human Element*)
    BELOW BUSHLINE (With a Human Element*)

    There is an additional ‘trial’ category this year of LONG EXPOSURE. This is likely to appeal only to more experienced photographers. Refer to the FMC website for details.

    Photos should be jpeg or tiff format with file size between 1 MB and 5 MB. All photos must have been taken in NZ after 1 January 2016.

    Note that the winning and second place photos in each category will be submitted to the national FMC competition to be judged in September. There are some very worthwhile prizes for placegetters in this competition (GPS, head torch, sleeping mat, coffee table books etc).

    We encourage you to enter the club competition. Those of you who have attended the judging evening in the past will know that Grant offers great advice on how to take good photographs – and you will also know that even photos by the club’s seasoned photographers can get trashed in the judging. But what better way to learn!

    Any questions email or refer to FMC website.

    *FMC defines human element:

    The definition of a “human element” is flexible but the general intention is: Where the photo contains as anything other than as a very minor feature: people, a hut, a track sign/marker, bridge, ice axe and anything else that has been introduced by humans into the environment then we would define that as having “a Human element”. But if a photo has what could be called a Human Element but that element is very small, inconsequential and not a feature in the photo then you could count it as “No Human Element”.
