Waikato A&P Photographic Competition

Grab your camera and show off your creative skills for the annual photography competition. You’ll have four categories to choose from, all of which include a chance to win prize money. Impress the judges with your best shot!

All entries will be on display at the A&P Show, Friday 1st November to Sunday 3rd November.


  • Rural Life – Capture the beauty, heartache, challenge or pure joy that comes from our rural experience. In this category you can feature animals or people or neither.  It is the emotion that should reach out from your work.
  • Scenic- “Ô, Sunlight! The most precious gold to be found on Earth.” – Roman Payne. Showcase the natural beauty in our world; the diversity of our planet offers sand, sea, sky and galaxies to find inspiration.
  • Motion – Capturing movement in a single frame.
  • Purple – The colour purple is a rare occurring colour in nature and as a result is often seen as having sacred meaning. Use your creativity to display the purple you see through your lens.
