It’s time to refresh our Rotorua 2030 vision and identifying the district’s strengths and opportunities that will help us build on those will be key to Rotorua’s ongoing progress. We need your input to help us with future planning to ensure we focus on what will make a real difference..

This photo competition is about you sharing your story visually. It’s not about taking technically perfect pictures – this is about how you see Rotorua.
