KAMERS & The Pretty Blog Photo Competition 2013

Are you an avid photographer? Whether you take pictures as a hobby or a profession, this is for you.

Every year we see stunning photos taken by our visitors and after our very successful KAMERS photo competitions in 2011 and 2012, we decided to reward those who capture the details to make the creativity of KAMERS timeless once again.


We have teamed up with our ever-stylish online media partner The Pretty Blog for an exciting nationwide photo competition during KAMERS 2013. It’s all about creativity, passion and beautiful subject matter.

The winner will receive the title of KAMERS & The Pretty Blog photographer of 2013, be featured on our blog and receive a 1 year SARIE subscription!

In addition, the public can vote for “Audience Favourites” on our Pinterest profile by repinning their favourite photos from the competition. The photos with the most repins will also be featured on our blog, so start repinning and motivating your friends to join in the fun as soon as your photos are loaded!

The winner will be chosen for the best presentation of the KAMERS experience as a whole, as well as in detail, by the KAMERS team and acclaimed portrait and wedding photographer Christine Meintjes, along with her The Pretty Blog co-owner, Nicola Pretorius. Try to cover general atmosphere and people shots, as well as beautiful product and food detail shots.

  1. Just one question! I have never been to KAMERS before. Are we allowed to “move” objects to take pictures or just take pictures as everything is placed? Very excited!

    • Tamsieh, it would probably be best to ask a supplier before moving any of their products, but if you tell them it would make a beautiful photo they probably won’t mind. Don’t worry, there will be more than enough pretty things to shoot!

    • Marinda, die eerste inskrywings behoort teen die einde van die week op Facebook en Pinterest te begin verskyn, nader aan Maandag se sluitingsdatum. Ons het egter geen inskrywing onder jou naam ontvang nie.

  3. Hi dankie vir die terugvoer! Inskrywing is gedoen deur my dogter Ashley van der Mescht!
    Hoop julle het dit ontvang?
