The Judge.

Carole Garside, who is a renowned photographer in Te Kauwhata will be judging the entries and will chose a winner from each section.

Ever since Carole was ten years old and got a Kodak instamatic camera and some black and white film as a birthday present, she has been fascinated with photography. Her passion for photography, however, did not begin to blossom until she acquired her first DSLR camera, which was roughly eight years ago. During this period, she gained her Licentiate  through the  New Zealand Photography Society, has earned a Level 5 diploma, and is enrolled in a Level 6 programme.

She is actively involved in both the Pukekohe Camera Club and the Waiuku Camera Club. She took home a silver medal from last year's Prestigious North Shore Photography Salon.

Carole is looking forward to seeing the photographs entered in this competition, and is excited to be able to choose the winning shots.

The winners will be notified by email on September 21st. Winners will then be announced on our website and Facebook page along with the winning images. 

All entries must be received via email by 5.00pm on the

2nd of September 2024.
