I just found out that Air New Zealand and NZ’s D.O.C. have come up with the Great Walker contest, and it sounds like a photographer’s dream. Nine weeks to walk New Zealand’s Nine Great Walks, all paid for. All you have to do is get some exercise, take some pictures, and blog about it. Four winners total. I’m working on my entry now, so that means there will be three spots left. I hope my followers and blog friends enter and win at least one other spot, so that they can join me for the most epic photo outing ever imagined.
Normally I wouldn’t promote a contest, but this opportunity sounds too amazing, and I would love it if I was responsible for helping a winner to learn about this fantastic chance. New Zealand is a beautiful country, and made for cameras, hiking and backpacking (of course one of the “Great Walks” is actually a river that you have to canoe or kayak down! Sweet as!)
To get you in the mood, here is a shot from this geothermal wonderland called New Zealand, where hot springs actually bubble out of the beach, and you can dig your own pool to soak in, as the waves lap over you-
Deadline is Monday, October 22nd, 5 pm New Zealand time. Which is a day earlier in the U.S.- 9 pm Pacific time on the 21st! Don’t let the time zones mess up your entry. Good luck- I hope to be tramping with one (or even three of you) come February.
