Matai Bay Hut Calendar

Matai Bay Hut is a DOC hut managed by a trust in Tennyson Inlet. The trust publishes an annual calendar as a fundraiser to cover hut maintenance. Images for the calendar are selected from entries submitted by the public. Images must be on a theme of Pelorus and the outer Sounds (ie Pelorus, Mahau, Keneperu, Tennyson Inlet, D'Urville Island areas). Selected images are published with title and credit to the photographer, and the photographer receives a copy of the calendar. Submissions are open all year around, however there is a cutoff in May so that calendars can be produced.  Entries for 2018 are now closed but this is still relevant for 2019
