Firstly I would a big thank you to Lara Moss for organising the event this year in Queenstown. Lara did a fantastic job arranging the field trip up to Glenorchy, organising the judge, setting up the venue and hosting the evening.
(Glenorchy Field Trip: It was the first time I had ventured up past Queenstown to that part of the country, spectacular scenery.)
This year the prints were displayed with no names, which made for an interesting night trying to guess whose prints were whose. It also made the announcement of the results even that more exciting. As after the judge announced the winner and discussed the merits of the print, the next step was to peel the print off the wall to find out whose print it was! (Not even the judge knew whose prints they were)
The judging was undertaken by Michael Thomas, an editorial, and commercial photographer based in Arrowtown, (http://www.michaelthomas.co.nz/about.php).

Congratulations to the winners and a big thank you to all who participated in the event.
I will post the results along with the winning images (Subject to photographers permission), hopefully by the end of the day on the Privateering Light Website
Rumor is that it could be coming to Dunedin next year. Stay tuned.
Privateering the light in Glenorchy - On the 22nd November
Meet at Remarkables Primary School at 8:30am to car pool. Lots of places to stop and steal light on the way. Once in Glenorchy we will search out the best light to capture in and around the head of the lake.
If you can't start that early then contact Lara if you want to meet us somewhere on the journey – 027 589 6171
Catch you there.
