A call for entries

Every year the Opua Cruising Club, with the help of our sponsors, publish an annual calendar for its members.  The new calendar comes out in September each year and includes all the events and activities happening at the club.

This year OCC are holding a photography competition and inviting entries from our community to submit photographs to be published in our next calendar.  

For so many years now Opua Cruising Club has been the community hub where we all come together to share our experiences of living on the bay and messing around in boats.

Venturing down to the club to go sailing, racing, cruising or just connecting with friends to watch the boats go by, is what it’s all about, for all of us.

Whether seen from sea, land, or air we are looking for photographs that capture and celebrate your experiences of Opua Cruising Club: the boating, the people, the sailing, and the destinations.

In whatever way OCC has touched your life, captured your attention, or intrigued you, we want you to show us how you have snapped your memorable moments.

This competition is for everyday photographers!  We all have a mobile phone, and we are all everyday photographers.  

We invite you to go through your camera roll and look for a photograph, (max 10 entries) that best shows your experiences of being part of the Opua Cruising Club community.

This competition will be judged by the Opua Cruising Club Committee and the top entries will have their photographs published in the 2022-2023 calendar.

A maximum of 10 entries may be submitted. All images must be your own original photos.

Images can be in jpeg, png or HEIC format and be a minimum of 2.5mb.  (That’s tech speak: – so long as you have a good mobile phone your images should be fine.)

Photographers of all levels and ages can enter. 

Email your images to  nanette.felton@gmail.com by the closing date.  If you are having any technical issues please get in touch with Nanette on 021 474 505 who can help with the tech stuff.

Entries close on the 10th August 2022.
