For the next three months budding photographers have the opportunity to capture special moments within Addo Elephant National Park, one of the top tourist destinations in the Eastern Cape, and stand a chance to win big prizes. Weekend Post and Katz Camera World, together with the SANParks Honorary Rangers: Addo Region, will be giving away more than R30000 in the MyAddo Photographic Competition.
The aim of the competition is not only to raise awareness about the biodiversity within the Addo Elephant National Park, but also to raise funds for research as well as to upgrade facilities for the benefit of all visitors to this wonderful conservation area.
All you have to do to enter is take a photograph of a nature scene in the Addo Elephant National Park. Photographers must indicate where in the national park the photo was taken.
There are two categories in which to enter: one for serious photographers using SLR cameras and an open category for those with point-and-shoot cameras. Prizes, will be awarded to the top three photographs in each section, and include: a two-night stay for two at Lalibela Game Reserve; a one night stay for two at Pumba Game Reserve and a one night stay for two at the Spekboom Tented Camp in Addo Elephant National Park. Canon has sponsored R10 000 worth of vouchers for each category.
The entry fee is R40 for adults and R20 for scholars and includes an A4 print by Katz. Proceeds will be donated to SANParks Honorary Rangers Addo Region.
