We had such an incredible response to our inaugural photo competition that it will now be an annual event. It truly was global. We received almost 200 photographs from alumni around the world that were taken on all seven continents, and our judging panel was impressed with the high standard of the entries. 

Marl Orton was first in the Nature category with his photo “Place in Line”, and June Stevenson’s photo “Kererū Binge was runner up.

Mark Orton also took out top honours in the People and Culture category with his photo “Mambabatok”. Iain Hutcheson was runner up with “Sifnos Sunrise”.
