During the next three months budding photographers have the opportunity to capture special moments within Addo Elephant National Park, one of the top tourist destinations in the Eastern Cape, and stand a chance to win big prizes.

This is the 3rd year that Katz Camera World has collaborated with SANParks Honorary Rangers: Addo region to host this competition.
Weekend Post and Katz Camera World, together with the SANParks Honorary Rangers: Addo Region, will be giving away more than R50 000 in the Canon/”MyAddo” Photographic Competition.

The aim of the competition is not only to raise awareness about the bio-diversity within the Addo Elephant National Park, but also to raise funds for research and conservation initiatives within the park. Last year the competition raised just over R16 000.

All you have to do to enter is take a photograph of a nature scene in the Addo Elephant National Park. Photographers must indicate where in the park the photo was taken.

There are two categories in which to enter: One for serious photographers using SLR cameras and an open category for those with point-and-shoot cameras. Prizes will be awarded to the top three photographs in each section. First prize: Canon gift vouchers to the value of R30 000; 2nd prize: 2 nights stay at Matyholweni Camp in Addo Elephant National Park; 3rd prize: 2 nights stay at a mountain cottage at Mountain Zebra National Park.

Lucky draw prizes will be drawn on the day of prize giving, which will be in March 2013 and everyone who entered will have the opportunity to win either an accommodation prize from Addo Palace, http://www.addopalace.co.za" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;, Crews Inn B&B, http://www.crewsinnbnb.co.za" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; and food vouchers from Sasol Summerstrand.

The entry fee is R40 for adults and R20 for scholars and includes an A4 print by Katz. Proceeds will be donated to SANParks Honorary Rangers Addo Region.

Entries are unlimited. The closing date is 28 February 2013. Entry forms are available on the Katz website: http://www.katz.co.za" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; under competitions.
