Fresh Shoots Photo Competition


The Competition

From 3 September 2018 through to November 2019, the Wellington Botanic Garden will be celebrating its 150th anniversary with a range of family-friendly events.
Partnering up with Excio, we’re inviting photographers to highlight all the wonderful things that make the Wellington Botanic Garden much more than a garden, while encouraging photographers to focus on the garden season by season.
The competition has three different categories you may enter: Nature, People and Events and Creative. It is also been split into four quarterly competitions based on each of the four seasons:
1 September - 14 December 2018
15 December - 22 March 2019
23 March - 21 June 2019
22 June - 20 September 2019


Every season the judges will select the winners in each category and an overall winner in both senior and junior categories.
