Oamaruvians and tourists alike are being encouraged to get out their cameras and snap their best shots of the precinct before Friday.
The Oamaru Whitestone Civic Trust is running a photo competition via the Oamaru’s Victorian Precinct Facebook page.
Organiser Frances Mcmillan said the winner of the competition will be used as the page’s banner for a month.
They hoped to hold the competition each month for a new banner.
There are a lot of people who are taking photos in the precinct but these photos aren’t often seen or shared so having a competition like this would get the photos out there, she said.
“It’s a perfect space for all the photographs.”
Anyone wanting to enter can take a photo anywhere in the precinct from the harbour to the Forrester Gallery.
These needed to be uploaded to the page or could be entered by using the hashtag #victorianoamaru on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.Each entry could be publicly voted for by visiting Oamaru’s Victorian Precinct on Facebook.
The competition began on January 1 and will end on January 16 but voting won’t finish until the 21st.
