Auckland Festival of Photography 2016

We are delighted to announce that the 2016 Auckland Festival of Photography will take place from Thursday 2nd June to Friday 24th June.

Our 2016 exhibition submission and registration process will be announced next month in October. The new curated theme for 2016 plus new ways to participate will be announced next month. Check our website for more details or like us on our FB page.

Next year is the 13th year of the Festival and we look forward to showing more inspirational, challenging and great new artists, projects and exhibitions to engage our audience. We will also be inviting an international guest curator to collaborate on the 2016 Festival theme. More news on this in October!

The Auckland Festival of Photography is open to programming any exhibition created through the medium of  photography. We encourage festival participation from all levels of exhibitors including dealer galleries, private and public venues, individual artists and community groups. We aim to make festival participation as barrier free and inclusive as possible, in order to reflect and represent the diverse populace and points of view within Auckland.
