New Zealand photographers are invited to submit their work for inclusion in the Photival Photography Festival. Three photographers will be selected to exhibit a selection of work at the Wellington Festival, launching in February 2017. The winners will be selected by a panel of international expert judges: Athol McCredie, Curator of Photography at Te Papa Museum, Nigel Atherton, Editor in Chief of Amateur Photographer, UK, and Myles Little, Photo Editor for TIME Magazine in New York City.

Have your work seen alongside internationally acclaimed photographers, in an exhibition in the city centre, as well as having one of your images displayed across the entire city to be seen by thousands, as part of our promotional campaign.

Theme: BRINK

Our world is on the brink in many respects. Will we save or destroy our environment? Will we create technology that vastly improves our lives or that will stop us from living them? Will we alter the current political systems to make a better world? Will we consider cultures, species, languages important enough to save? Show us your World on the Brink by submitting your work to be in with a chance to win.


Please submit three images that fall under this year’s theme of ‘Brink‘. We want to see your world on the brink of change, be that environmental, political, social, economic or technological. These would preferably be a series, however we will consider unrelated images if they are of outstanding quality. We’re particularly keen to see work from residents of Wellington and New Zealand. Each submission of three images requires a submission fee of $10, payable through Paypal. You may make more than one submission if you wish.

All three images must be submitted in 300DPI PNG or JPEG. Minimum image size 2000 pixels on the long edge. Conditions of entry apply, please see the website
