Trenna Packer Salver 2018

Judge for 2018: Elizabeth Passuello

The competition was started by Hagley Camera Club of Christchurch in 1972 as a memorial to Trenna Packer, a keen nature photographer who was killed in a car accident on her way back from a photographic expedition. The Nature Photography Society took over the running of it in 2007.

The objective of the Trenna Packer Salver Competition is to illustrate the diversity of the natural world in New Zealand and its off shore islands, with images that are of a very high standard. As the natural environment comes under increasing threats from human activity it is vital that we have a comprehensive collection of high quality images. Many of the images used to illustrate field guides have come from members of camera clubs.

We hope that by running an annual New Zealand Nature inter-club competition we can promote an increasing interest in photographing the natural world as well as encourage best practice in photographing nature subjects.

We will be hosting the showing and announcing the results of the Trenna Packer Competition on Monday July 16th 2018 At 7.30 pm in our Club Rooms, Rock and Mineral Clubrooms 110 Waltham Rd Christchurch.

Anyone from your Club will be most welcome to attend that night.

Bevan Tulett will also make a short presentation on the subject of Bird Photography. This precedes the workshop Bevan will be running on 28 July, at the Travis Wetland.

Please note: There will be no Members images tonight
