Cover Shot Sought For Council's Flagship Document

Christchurch City Council is keen to hear from anyone who has recently captured on camera a quintessentially Christchurch summertime moment.

The winner of a city-wide photo competition, launched just before Christmas, will have their image printed on the cover of Christchurch's Long-Term Council Community Plan 2009-19 - the Council's flagship document.

The image will also run on the cover of the summary document, which will be distributed to every household in the city.

Christchurch City Council Planning and Performance Manager Peter Ryan says it is important that our people get involved in the process as Our Community Plan is all about our city and its residents.

"This plan will describe what sort of city we live in and where we are going, so it's very important to our community. It also paints a picture of Christchurch to the rest of the world, so the image we choose for the front cover sets the tone of the whole plan.

"We want to hear what you think about our plans for the future and ensure you play a role in the process, so will encourage everyone to get involved in the consultation process in March this year.

"But for now, we are looking for an image that captures what it means to you to live in our great city."

The competition is open to everyone; entrants are asked to capture a digital image of a person or people taking part in "a quintessentially Christchurch summertime activity".

You can enter up to three different landscape-style images - more details are available on the entry form.

More details and entry forms are available at Council service centres and libraries, or online at
