WPS have announced and invited us to join in their upcoming competition which has a bit of a twist to it.

Contestants won’t know until 10am on Saturday the 22nd of February what the four chosen themes for the competition are.  They then

have just twelve hours to select the themes they want to explore and devise, shoot and submit up to five images by10pm that evening.

Bruce Girdwood has agreed to be the judge and they are offering some great prizes for the  winners.

Wellington Photographic Supplies and Canon are supporting them with an excellent prize for the overall winner  (A Canon EOS 200D Mk II APS-C DSLR
+  18-55 IS STM II Camera Kit  valued at $1,249). They are also offering  Print vouchers and Okko UV filters for the various category winners.
