Walk1200km ‘Photos of Summer’ competition

As the Walk1200km Facebook group can attest, taking photos on walks is a must.

And just as well because every three months, we’ll be giving away a Lumix TZ90 camera. The first photo competiton is themed around Summer. Simply take your best summer-themed photos on your walks and send them in!

But what makes a good photo? We’re looking for images that celebrate walking: beautiful views, happy people, achievement, wildlife.

Tip: the best photos have a clear subject and people make a very compelling subject!

Tip 2: Always submit hi-res photos – don’t reduce their size to make it easier to email – we need the original image.

How to Enter

  • Email photos to walk1200km@lifestylepublishing.co.nz.
  • Ensure the subject line of the email is ‘Walk1200km photo comp’.
  • Include a caption that details where the photo was taken, who is in the photo and why it represents summer walking.
  • Deadline for entries: January 10, 2022. Some T&Cs may apply, see bottom of the page.

Terms and conditions: Only registered Walk1200km participants will be eligible to win any prizes. Only participants domiciled in New Zealand are eligible to win prizes. Photos submitted for the photo comp must be hi-resolution (please do not reduce the image size to make it easier to email. if necessary use a file transfer service such as WeTransfer). Photos submitted to the photo comp can be used by Wilderness and Walk1200km free of charge to promote the challenge. Photos used by Wilderness for other means unrelated to the Walk1200km challenge will be paid at our usual photo rates.
