A sneak peek at the Auck­land Fes­ti­val of Pho­tog­ra­phy line-up

The Photographer's Mail - - News -

Hav­ing re­cently an­nounced that the 2016 An­nual Com­mis­sion by Sa­cred Hill win­ning artist is Russ Flatt, the Auck­land Fes­ti­val of Pho­tog­ra­phy team has been work­ing hard be­hind the scenes to make this year’s fes­ti­val as great as ever.

The event will be held on June 2–24, and it’s been con­firmed that the Auck­land Photo Day is back af­ter a year’s hia­tus in 2015. The 24-hour ‘day in the life’ com­pe­ti­tion was ini­ti­ated in 2004 and asks Auck­lan­ders to cap­ture images that re­flect their city.

This year’s com­pe­ti­tion sees the in­tro­duc­tion of a new cat­e­gory — you can now cap­ture and sub­mit mov­ing images (videos, time- lapses, short films). All images en­tered must have been cap­tured on the day, and the of­fi­cial date will be an­nounced soon.

A small pre­view of the 2016 fes­ti­val pro­gramme has been re­leased, with Ilan Wit­ten­berg’s Bare Truth se­ries of work be­ing in­cluded in this year’s line-up. The fes­ti­val is also work­ing with the In­dian Photo Fes­ti­val to present work from more than a dozen pho­tog­ra­phers from In­dia dur­ing the fes­ti­val. Bei­jing’s Sim Chi Yin’s work, ti­tled Rat Tribe, will also be shown dur­ing this year’s fes­ti­val.
