Otari Photo Competition Winners
10 December 2013
Walking or picnicking at Otari-Wilton’s Bush is a great way to wind down after a busy year – but you can also get a dose of nature online by checking out the entries and winners of our latest photo competition.

This year the winners in the Otari-Wilton’s Bush Photo Competition were judged in three categories and there was also a People’s Choice winner selected through Facebook voting.
- Plant portrait - Sally Lees
- Otari photo - Fraser Punt
- Young person’s photo - Ben De Boeck
- People’s Choice - Aurélie Aubertin
Each category winner receives a $100 voucher from Wellington Photographic Supplies, a copy of the Field Guide to New Zealand Native Trees by John Dawson and Rob Lucas (courtesy of Otari-Wilton’s Bush Trust) and a bowl carved out of wood sourced from Otari-Wilton’s Bush. The People’s Choice winner receives a bowl carved out of Otari wood and a selection of native plants.
The entries were judged by Ann Shelton, Senior Lecturer in Photography at Massey University; Jeremy Rolfe, Technical Advisor Flora at the Department of Conservation; and City Council photographer Justine Hall.
