Lourensford Estate has launched a #SeasonsOfLourensford Instagram-based photographic competition and invites the public to capture the beauty of the wine estate as it is transformed by the seasons.
There will be a prize for each of Summer, Autumn, Winter and Spring but competition entrants will also be eligible for a grand prize with the winner being announced at the inaugural #SeasonsOfLourensford photographic exhibition, to be launched in November 2017.
One of the world’s most beautiful wine estates, Lourensford offers photographers a visual feast across 4000 hectares of forest, Fynbos, fruit orchards, vineyards and mountains. So whether it’s blossoms on the apple trees, new buds on the vines or one of the glorious Proteas, which thrive on the farm, there are endless opportunities for eager photographers to portray the distinctive beauty of each season.
The #SeasonsOfLourensford competition seasonal deadlines:
- Summer – 7 April 2017
- Autumn – 31 May 2017
