What do you love about Hastings-Heretaunga? Show us and you could show the whole city!

Show Us Your HeretaungaWe’re looking for 24 photos which show the best of Hastings to adorn the six, solar-powered lightboxes, situated in Civic Square, the city centre mall, and outside Toitoi – Hawke’s Bay Arts & Events Centre.

We want to use these lightboxes, which are more than 2m tall, to share what we love about Hastings and we need your help. Simply capture what Hastings-Heretaunga means to you in a high resolution photograph, fill out the form below and upload your image to enter.

Your photo can be of anything – people, places, activities – it’s up to you. This is an opportunity to express the many cultures and diversity with our Hastings community on a large scale, and to enhance the city centre experience for everyone who visits here.

Photos must be at least 300 dpi or 5MB in size. The competition is open to all ages, and the final selection will aim to include a diverse range of ages, people, cultures, and locations, so it’s a true reflection of Hastings District. If selected, your name will be printed on your panel.

You must own your photograph and have the permission of anyone in it to publish it on the lightboxes. Portrait orientation is preferable as that is the shape of the lightbox panels. Entries close on June 13, with the new panels installed soon after.

Please note, the selection criteria are based on the Toi-Tū Hawke’s Bay strategic framework and the judges’ decision is final. No correspondence will be entered into.

So get snapping! You don’t have to be a professional photographer, simply take a great shot of something or someone local you love and enter it below.
