Nikon webNIKON Auckland Photo Day 2014

Every June - midnight to midnight - 24 hours, one day, one city

The 2014 Festival date for this year's Nikon Auckland Photo Day is to be Saturday 7 June.

NIKON AUCKLAND PHOTO DAY (initiated by the festival in 2004) is an open access public competition run over a period of 24 hours. For one day only photographers are asked to capture an image which reflects their Auckland.  If the photo 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.  Groups, individuals, families, children  -  anyone with access to a camera is encouraged to submit the scenes, people and places that reflect their Auckland region.

Auckland Photo Day is conversational, it allows anyone, anywhere in Auckland to share their perspectives of our region. It creates democratic visual conversations about the place we live, work and play. We want to see the fascination in the everyday, what is supringsly different and what is comfortingly familiar. This event celebrates the many individual pockets of culture and identity present in New Zealand's biggest city by building cultural currency. Whilst celebrated in a spirit of fun this event also fulfills the important role of documenting our life right here and now in the world we live in. A DAY IN THE LIFE of Auckland. Look at Auckland through some new eyes and show us your vision.

Photographs are kept in an archive for future exhibition and to provide a visual resource for the region.  All images submitted are available to view for reference, research and limited use for promotional purposes under licence.
