D-Photo Magazine Photo Comp.

Calling all Kiwi Photog's


D-Photo Magazine is running the annual Nikon Photo Competition for non professionals so now's your chance to get in on the Action.
I have entered in four of the categories and I have to say I'm feeling a little underwhelmed ( or should that be over whelmed ) with the standard of the competition.
Checkout all the entries to date

Nikon has put up some really nice gear for the grand prize and individual sponsors of the sections are putting up a prize as well.
I sent this image in taken with my Fuji S5700 for the landscape image. Could be a winner but somehow I don't think so :)

  1. I got all excited and thought I had a photo to enter in the competition, but then realized it was New Zealand only. Bummer.

    Sorry to hear that. Did you have a look at the entries?

  3. Gotta be in it to win it. But you knew that. I enter the Fuji monthly comp every month here in England. Actually won second prize last year. A Fuji 2800, which I promptly flogged as I had the HS20 already. And last January, a friend here won the HS20 (first prize). So, fingers crossed, eh?

  4. Addendum: Snapped up the Lumix LX5 recently. Dang. What a camera. Very, very nice...

    1. Yes, my son works at Heathcote appliances and they stock the LX5.
      He's going to shout himself one for his birthday. He reports that its a very good compact in all situations and that jells with reports I've heard from other quarters.

  5. Haven't had a look just yet. Plan to do so. School holiday was last week for my daughter and was at the Grand Canyon. Amazing is all I can say. Great chance for me to work through settings on my X-S1.

    1. Yep, the Grand canyon is in the bucket list ( that ever growing Bucket List) :)

  6. I know what you mean. Mine is overflowing already. Funny how the contest is for NZ residents only. NZ is in my bucket for a 3 to 4 week RV drive around the country.

    1. I think the reason they keep it to NZ only is partly because Nikon sponsors other events that are similar to this one, just as Canon do, in other countries.
      As D-Photo magazine are the hosts I guess there thinking is simply that its a great way for other Kiwi photographers to see and comment on each others work.

      If they offered it globally it would in all likelihood become too unwieldy.
      I'm pretty this is why National Geographic charge you for each shot you send them in this competition, its a way to limit the replies. At $18.00 per shot it gets expensive if you want to send in more than one, which I want to do.
