Capture My Cape Town and Win

7 September 2010

In celebration of My Cape Town and World Tourism Month this September, Cape Town Tourism has put out a call to all photographers and filmmakers to enter the photographic competition Capture My Cape Town. From MMS mavericks and doccie dramatists to pictorial pros and point-and-shoot enthusiasts, the Capture My Cape Town competition invites Capetonians of all skill levels to capture the Cape Town they live in and the Cape Town they may discover anew during My Cape Town month.

In partnership with SANPARKS, there are great prizes up for grabs. The winning videographer will receive R15 000 in cash and will stand the chance of being chosen to film the Big Six locations in Cape Town for use on the Cape Town Tourism website at a future date. The best high-res photograph wins R10 000 in cash and a full Hoerikwaggo Trail walk with tented accommodation on Table Mountain. The winning MMS (mobile phone submission) will win R5 000 in cash and a two-night stay at Overseers Cottage on Table Mountain.

The public will be invited to participate in voting for their favourite submissions by visiting Capture My Cape Town platforms on Flickr and Facebook. In addition, a team of carefully selected judges will evaluate the entries to select the winners in the various categories.
