2017 Festival Photo Competition

Cost of attending Elgin Cool Wine & Country Food Festival 2017?

R140 if you planned ahead and booked online with Webtickets or R160 at the door, on the day from Peregrine Farm Stall – as well extra cash for food and stocking up the wine cellar.

Capturing that special moment or spectacular view?

A good eye, quick finger-shutter co-ordination, little bit of battery power and memory ... or if you're old school: the cost of a spool and printing.

Winning a fabulous food, wine and adventure weekend getaway to the magical Elgin Valley worth nearly R8,000?
