2022 Festival Dates

introduction - taking part

Auckland Festival of Photography is New Zealand's leading international photographic art & cultural Festival held across Auckland galleries, project + public spaces. We are open to programming any project created through the medium of photography and encourage active participation from a broad spectrum of talent including professional, amateur and young photographers. 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.

Due to the ongoing impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Festival Trust has agreed to make simple changes to how the Festival programme will be delivered in 2022. Building on our strategy of outdoor exhibitions since 2007 and the introduction of an online programme for the 2020/21 Festivals, the 2022 Festival will now feature 3 key sections: In-Venue, Outdoor and Online. SUBMISSIONS closed.
