TZIPAC is proud to launch the inaugural Live, Love and Laughter photography competition. This is the first in our series of charity based events. For us at TZIPAC, an important facet of photography is rooted in reflecting and exalting over our every day life, its many beauties and great diversity in ways of life around the world. Unicef, whose’s mission is to create a better world for our children, who are undoubtedly the most deserving of a chance to live, love and laugh. As such, we will be donating 100% of the net proceeds from this competition to UNICEF New Zealand. So please, join us, share with us your personal vision of life, love and laughter and, at the same time, help us to make a difference to the community.
After the huge success of our photography competition, GetLenses are once again giving away £500 worth of vouchers to spend on photography equipment from Amazon.co.uk. Entering is easy… Simply send us a photograph you have taken of a sight or object that reminds you of an eye. This could be anything a cloud in the sky, the froth on your coffee cup, or even water draining through a plughole. If you think it looks like an eye, we want to see it. The more imaginative, the better. So get your creative cap on and get snapping! Submit your photograph to firstname.lastname@example.org, along with a brief explanation of what you’ve seen in the photograph and where it was taken. Don’t forget to include your name, address, telephone number and email address. The competition will from now on be ongoing, with a new winner being picked every three months.
