Winning and highly commended photographs will be announced at a prize-giving on Saturday 30 March 2019 followed by the opening of a free exhibition of winners and selected entries. This year we’ll also be poring over the last ten years of winning entries to find the Otago Wildlife Photographer of the Decade. Who will join Craig McKenzie, the first holder of this prestigious title, in the Otago Wildlife Photography Competition hall of fame?
