This page has basic info on the branch competitions and the competition forms for 2019. Note the two close offs for entry forms. For branch comps only its the end of August 2019 and for entries wanting to be considered for entry into the National competitions we will need them by early June 2019. See the competition rules for full details. The main thing is to have the entry in and then if needed we can assist you to locate a qualified scorer. If supplying an entry prior to the score sheet please also supply a picture of the head so we know it exists !

HVNZDA Competition Rules 2019.pdf


"HVNZDA is now accepting entries into the 2019 Antler, Horn and Tusk and Photography Competitions. Since last year, we've made some changes to the competition rules, mainly in the photography categories. We've also added new entry categories, and prizes, for both pictures and trophies. Follow the link to the new competitions rules guide and entry forms and, longtime entrants, please read carefully! Pay particular attention to the new closing dates for those who want entries considered for NZDA Nationals, and those of you only interested in entering the club's comp.

For entries, particularly for the photography categories, please post your physical entries to PO Box 40226, Upper Hutt, or drop off at a future club meet, or contact a committee member for drop-off to e.g. a Wellington CBD spot Monday-Friday office hours. 

Many of you are passionate photographers and trophy hunters and long-time entrants into the club's competitions. For the past few years the club's committee has been working to streamline and improve the workings of the annual competitions and have made process and rules changes to that end. Following members' feedback at the club's AGM in May, we are committed to holding a panel review of the competitions to agree on a process and structure which can suit the range of member interests and abilities, encourage participation, all while maintaining the ethos, heritage and purpose of the competitions. The panel will comprise current committee organisers, current and past judges, and any member with a history of entering the competitions who wishes to take part. Speak to Gordon or Emmet at a future club meet for more info".
