We encourage participation from people of all walks of life, to share their unique stories through the democratic medium of photography.


The Festival team works all year-round creating opportunities so that photographers from every genre can present their new work. We provide and maintain the platform, profile and network necessary to present you with the best opportunities to showcase photography in our annual Festival.

Festival exhibitors can have the opportunity to join the 2024 community and be part of a Festival that showcases both international and national artists at diverse stages of their careers. All funds received as donations go towards the ongoing sustainability of the annual Festival and associated activities.

You can help us achieve this by making a donation to the 2024 Festival, we are a registered New Zealand Charity: CC38839.  All NZ donations are tax deductible and earn 33c in the $1 as a rebate on your annual taxes in New Zealand. From $5 to a monthly amount, help make the annual Festival really something to celebrate!
