Nikon Auckland Photo Day is an open access public competition run over a period of 24 hours. For one day only, you are asked to capture still or moving imaging that reflects your Auckland.

If the image is good enough to show your friends and family - your built-in audience - it might be good enough to win 1st Prize in Nikon Auckland Photo Day.

This one day event celebrates the many diverse pockets of culture and identity present in New Zealand’s biggest city. Celebrated in a spirit of fun, this event also fulfils the important role of documenting a day in the life of Auckland.

For Nikon Auckland Photo Day in 2018, again we are embracing fully the time element of the 24 hour day aligning advances in technology which make it so easy for the creation of time-lapse or video or short films.

So we are celebrating the new strand to the competition -  to capture your day with moving image and submit it to the new category - Nikon KeyMission Moving Image prize.

The 2018 1st, 2nd, 3rd prize winners including Top 30 runners up and People's Choice winner will be displayed on the Festival website, generate local media interest and social media exposure plus the public are invited to vote for the People's Choice winner for one week in late June online.

Dont forget all imaging must be taken and shot on the day itself, it must be new work not existing work you already have. Prizes, judges, voting, terms & conditions on our website -
