Exciting times for Photobook New Zealand with the launch of our Boosted crowdfunding campaign this week.
Photobook New Zealand will be held in Wellington, March 11 -13 2016. Our programme includes:
  • displays of New Zealand and Australian photobooks from photographers and independent presses – browse and buy
  • the New Zealand Photobook of the Year awards, sponsored by Momento Pro
  • personal stories of photography and photobook publishing from inspiring practitioners
  • panel discussions about topics such as, getting your work out into the work, and photobook design
  • a film about New Zealand photobook publishing and  a presentation about early NZ photo-albums – and much more

Our small working group has happily given our time to create this event – but we need your help to make it happen.

You can donate – as little or as much as you like – by going to our page on Boosted and clicking the big red donate button.

We’re pleased to have reached 24% of our $5,000 target in a few days and a huge thank you to people who have already donated. If you can help, and share this information, we’ll really appreciate it.

Thanks to our major sponsors Momento Pro.

To give you a taste of what we’ve got planned – here’s an image from one of our keynote speakers – Ying Ang, whose book on the Gold Coast won the New York Photo Festival and Encontros Da Imagem book prize for 2014.
