The inaugural Northland Photography Awards were presented at a function at The Kauri Museum last Friday and will become an annual event, says museum CEO, Lisa Tolich.
“The team are encouraged by the response of our local Northland photographers in our first year and look forward to building on this for our next event. We would particularly like to encourage our young aspiring photographers to take inspiration from our 2017 entrants and give it a go”.
First place winners were: Open Category, Doug Cole — Standing Tall; Senior Student, Aaron Skelton — Kauri Tree; Junior Student, Corin Parsons — Kauri Tree on my Farm.
All finalist’s works will be on display and for sale at The Kauri Museum until October 8.
During this time, the public can vote for the Tudor Collins People’s Choice Award, across all the entries received, either online at kau.nz/tour/awards/ or in person at the museum.
