The Aztec Group has today launched “Aztec 10”, a photographic competition and exhibition to celebrate the Group’s ten years in Jersey. The Aztec Group is an independent owner managed fund administration business founded in Jersey in 2001. In ten years the Group has grown to over 110 staff in four jurisdictions, Jersey, Guernsey, Luxembourg and the United Kingdom.

Edward Moore, CEO and co-founder of the Aztec Group said “Our aim is to capture the imagination of the local community to mark this milestone through photographic images at the culmination of our ten years in Jersey. At the same time we hope to raise money for charity and give budding local amateur photographers the chance to have their work exhibited.”

The Aztec Group brand and this decade celebration are at the heart of the competition with local photographers being asked to push the boundaries of their creativity by capturing striking photographic images incorporate one or a combination of themes, Bright, Alternative and Ten.

There are two main competition categories, “Over 18” and “18 and Under”. There are numerous prizes on offer including a weekend photography course in Scotland, cash prizes of up to £250 and cash prizes for schools. There are also special prizes for the most images sold and best images for entrants “11 and Under”.

Money will be raised for three local charities at the exhibition, Help a Jersey Child, Jersey Hospice Care and Jersey Animals’ Shelter. Entrants will select a charity and all profits from sales of their images will go to the charity of their choice. The competition officially launches on 1 December 2011, with the closing date on 10 February 2012. A local exhibition of the best 150 entries will take place in March 2012.
