Student photo competition

Howick Lions Calendar Organiser, Jan Tait and Lion Grant Taylor cataloguing entry applications and images as they arrive.

Last year the Lions Club of Howick produced and marketed a 2021 Calendar with photographs taken around the Auckland East area.

The calendar achieved very good sales so it was decided this year to continue printing local area calendars annually. All proceeds go back into the local community and supporting suitable applicants of student age groups to Outward Bound camps.

For the 2022 calendar and planner it was decided to invite Year 9-13 students from local Auckland east colleges to compete in a photo competition with the 12 winning entries being published in next year’s calendar, one for each month.

The first prize is a Canon EOS 2000 Mark II camera sponsored by Canon NZ. Second and third prizes are from Monterey Cinemas, Warehouse Stationery, Paradice Ice Skating and Laser Tag.

The competition opened closes on August 31. Details and entry forms are on the website www.howicklions.org.nz and the submitted hard copy entry images will be collected from the various schools immediately after the closing date.

There will be an exhibition of the entries at the Fencible Lounge, Howick, on October 9 from 11am – 3pm and the 2022 Calendars with the winning students’ photographs will be available.
