Looking for news about the contest?  This page features the latest newsletters and information about band photographs.

As you would expect the Contest Committee and Management Board have been monitoring the impact of Covid-19 and Government policies closely. As of the 8 March, subject to any changes between now and the contest date, the Contest is proceeding as planned.


We are pleased to advise that Duncan Brown will be doing the band photographs for the contest. G4B bands should note that your photographs will be taken after your first event, the MSR, on Friday morning which will allow more time for each band to have their photo done when they leave the first circle.

COVERAGE: There will be the usual portrait photos as well as photos from the street march.

PREPAID PHOTO SALES: an online shop (click here) has been created to enable pre-ordering of photos.  There is a $5 discount off every product purchased prepaid, online, by 17 March 2021

PHOTO STYLES: Samples of the two styles of photograph can be seen on the on-line shop.

  • the traditional sports mount with text – event, location, the name of the band and band members; and
  • prints and canvases with just the event, location, and the name of the band, embedded into the photograph

There are more details in the welcome note to the shop.
