We are delighted to announce that Photobook New Zealand and Momento Pro are presenting the first New Zealand Photo Book Of The Year Awards.

Momento Pro are offering cash and credit prizes valued at $10,500. The awards will be presented at the launch of Photobook New Zealand on 11 March at Massey University and will be on display during the Photobook NZ fair.

Our crowdfunding campaign

As readers of this blog will know we’ve launched our funding campaign on Boosted. A huge thanks to those of you who have already donated.

But to make Photobook New Zealand happen, we really need your support. Please go to to donate – as little or as much as you like – it all helps.

We’ve got a really exciting programme of speakers and panels planned, as well as the opportunity for photographers to display and sell their books. You can also enter the New Zealand Photo Book of the Year Awards.

We’ve happily given our time in getting this far – now we really need you to join the team and help with a donation.
