ApiNZ National Photography Competition

The Apiculture New Zealand Photography competition is held annually at the industry national conference. It is an integral part of the honey and photography show, showcasing the skill of the photographer in highlighting the life of bees, beekeeping and the wider industry in media/print form.

The ApiNZ National Photography Competition was won by Gary Glasson of Glasson Apiaries on the West Coast.  He won gold medals for a dramatic photo of hives being swept away by a flood in the Taramakau River south of Greymouth, and for a scenic portrait.  The People’s Choice Award was claimed by Mario Bernasconi of Whare Honey for capturing the perfect shot of New Zealand beekeeping: a line of sheep on a hill above a line of beehives!
