Photo Competition


Have you ever had the privilege of walking across the Clanwilliam Dam wall? Now's your chance! Have you ever wondered how high the Clanwilliam Dam wall is, how wide the sluices are, or how it would be to look over the wall? Well, this opportunity may well be presented to you just once in your lifetime. We are introducing a photographic competition with a difference. September is tourism month and thousands of tourists have visited Clanwilliam over the past years. With the construction to increase the height of the Clanwilliam Dam wall having already begun, we would like to build up a photographic archive of the dam, dating back to it’s original construction in 1935, and we invite you to enter your photographs, any year, any angle. Entries must contain the following information and are to be submitted to Clanwilliam Tourism at

Both prize winners will have the opportunity to visit the dam, together with 3 of their family/friends (4 persons in total) as well as walk across the dam wall, under the guidance of construction staff. The winners will be announced at the beginning of October and the prizes must be claimed by a date still to be determined by the organizers of this competition, together with the Department of Water and Sanitation in Clanwilliam.
