The New Zealand Geographic Photographer of the Year 2013, will be picked from the entrants, as will the Young Photographer award, for entrants under the age of 21 on September 30, 2013.
All photos must have been shot after January 1, 2012, and within New Zealand territory—including New Zealand-administered Pacific and Antarctic dependency. Each entrant may submit a maximum of five images over the three categories of Landscape, Wildlife and Culture. In addition (or instead) photographers may submit a set comprising four to six images in the Photostory category.
Image requirements: at least 1000 pixels in the longest dimension. Finalists must be able to supply a high resolution file at a minimum of 3000 pixels in the longest dimension on request. Photos scanned from transparency are acceptable. Limited cropping is allowed, but the native resolution of the image must still be 3000 pixels on the longest edge.
