Entrants need to fill in the 2015 Photo Contest Entry Form and submit that via e-mail to jetaawellington.photocontest@gmail.com. Photos can be submitted either as e-mail attachments or shared via Dropbox.

Once all the submissions have been received, 10 photos from each category will be selected for display at the Japan Information and Cultural Centre (Level 18, The Majestic Centre, 100 Willis Street).

Public voting to decide the winners in each category will be open from Monday, November 16 until Friday, November 27. .
