Cantabrians are being asked to dust off their family albums, dig out any boxes of old snaps, and do their bit to preserve the region’s heritage.
Christchurch City Libraries’ annual Photo Hunt – is an opportunity to discover photo treasures that will reconnect Cantabrians to cherish, celebrate and commemorate our past.
The categories are:
- People – families, cultural and social events.
- Places – buildings, suburbs and the city.
- Two views in time – 2 photos of the same scene, place or person at different time periods. Images can be from any era, depicting any facet of Christchurch’s growth, development, social life or events in the city’s past and present.
As well as helping to boost important historical records, entrants are in line for some great prizes – one of two iPad minis or a Kobo ereader.
Enter at your local library.
Entries can be submitted at any Christchurch City library.
Bring your photograph(s) to your local library, and complete the entry form. Images will be carefully scanned and returned.
They will be viewable online at Kete Christchurch, our community repository.
Entries open Monday 29 September 2014 and close 5pm 31 October. Winners announced on 28 November 2014.
