Auckland Photo Blog School Takeover - Selwyn College

2016 is the 10th year anniversary of the Auckland Photo Blog and to celebrate we want to showcase some of the huge photography talent we know is out there amongst Auckland’s school students.  We are starting a new youth engagement project to involve more schools with our ongoing monthly Auckland Photo Blog for our 10th anniversary year. So for this month, March, the Auckland Photo Blog will be showcasing photography exclusively from Selwyn College students. And for the Photo of The Month, Selwyn College will be receiving a $150 Momento Photo Book voucher to make their own photobook with their Blog photographs. We're looking forward to seeing the students creativity and how Auckland is reflected in their work. Thanks to Alix Coleman at Selwyn College for getting her students on board.
