Photography Competition: NZ Birds


This week we are in support of the New Zealand Garden Bird Survey, which takes place between 25th June and 3rd July 2022. It’s a fantastic reason to spend time outdoors while doing your bit for science.

To celebrate, we've teamed up with Nikon to bring you a NZ Bird Photography Competition! Up for grabs we have THREE Nikon binoculars to giveaway to three winners to help elevate your bird watching experience.

Whether it's a cheeky Kea, a noisy Tui or our national icon the Kiwi - we want you to submit images of birds found in New Zealand.



Submit your photos of birds found in NZ & take part in the NZ Garden Bird Survey!

To be eligible to win, entrants must submit a screen shot of their survey confirmation. This can be submitted at the same time as their submission, or after.

Submissions for submitting photo's are open from 19th June - 3rd July. 

Taking part in the Garden Bird Survey is between 25th June - 3rd July.
