Ben Holland Memorial Photo Competition 2018

At the Nile River Festival 2018

Hosted annually at the Nile River Festival, the Ben Holland Memorial Photo Competition is held in memory of one of our river community friends. Ben Holland, a talented photographer and kayaker, tragically lost his life in accident in Kampala in 2006. 

This is a free to enter photo competition about recognising, honouring and showcasing all that is awesome about the Nile River Festival.

Good news! There are two prizes to be won at the 2018 festival and if your image is strong enough, you could win both:
The people’s choice award $100 – for the most liked image on either Facebook or Instagram.
The judges’ choice award $100 – photos will be judged on originality, technical excellence, composition, overall impact, artistic merit and subject matter. We want to see images that tell the stories of the Nile River Festival (the successes, the fears, the parties, the fun, the epic kayaking etc).

To enter you must include #NileRiverFest in your post and if you show the organising team your post you get a free beer for every unique entry (not for the same picture on two different social media platforms!).
