Rules of competition entry

The Friends of Kevin Hoffman Walk amateur photography competition is open to novice and amateur photographers only, strictly no professional photographers (i.e. a photographer who earns 100% of their income from photography).

All submitted photos MUST be taken along the Kevin Hoffman Walk, Lara, Victoria, Australia, between the competition opening and closing dates and be accompanied by a completed entry form. Incomplete entries (no entry form or no photos received) will be deemed ineligible and not included in the consideration by the Friends of Kevin Hoffman Walk committee.

  • For macro images, wider angle photos, which includes identifiable landmarks of the immediate area, must be submitted alongside to prove this if it’s not already evident in the submitted photo. Any photos where the location is not evident or provided will be either asked to submit said photo or disqualified from the competition.

Only digital photos may be entered and photo(s) must be over 800kb in size.

Photos in landscape orientation are preferred, as they fit better on a calendar.

Competition is open to all ages. Under 18s must inform us of their age or that they are under 18, as we will endeavour to select both adult and under 18 photos, depending on the number of photos submitted.

Friends of Kevin Hoffman Walk committee members are ineligible to enter, as they may be biased in the voting process.

A limit of 4 competition photos per person can be submitted, this does not include wider shots for identification purposes.

Once submitted, all digital photos become the property of the Friends of Kevin Hoffman Walk, with the knowledge that selected photos will be printed in a calendar, made available for sale to the public.

  • The Friends of Kevin Hoffman Walk may choose to use any submitted photos in, but not limited to, newsletters, advertising, on our website or Facebook page.
  • If there are people in you photo(s) you must have the permission of the person(s) in the photo(s). They must be informed that their photo may be included in a calendar for sale to the public.

Be creative, have fun, keep it iconic. Capture photos, not pieces of plants.
