With Photobook New Zealand in mind I’ve started an extract of my of the hills series. The work isn’t complete yet but there’s enough to start a grouping – with all the attendant anxieties as you try out your sweet dreams about what the work’s about and how you fondly imagined a sequence would flow. But editing is where work is made (or unmade) – so onward.
A bonus, one restless 5am dawn, was finally arriving at a title for the series.
The expert photography, publishing, design panel for the New Zealand Photobook of the Year has now been announced. The panel is:
Judging panel chair: David Cook, Photobook NZ committee member, lecturer Massey University
Harvey Benge, photographer, publisher
Paul McNamara, Director of McNamara Gallery Photography
Geoffrey H Short, Director PhotoForum NZ
Anna Brown, Director of Open Lab, Massey University.
There’s cash and credit prizes valued at $10,500 to be won across in three categories:
Self published Photobook of the Year
Trade published Photobook of the Year
People’s choice Photobook of the Year
Entry is free and for those printing their entry with Momento Pro there’s a 40% discount on book prints
Entries close 8 Feb 2016.
All you need is a print photobook published in the last two years …
The Photobook New Zealand team is delighted to open the bookings for spaces to display and sell books at Photobook New Zealand.
The bookfair will start with the opening night party on Friday 11 March 2016 and continue through Saturday March 12, ending at 5pm.
During Saturday there will be a small selection of inspiring presentations to help attract a wide range of people to the bookfair. And if you’re launching a new book, the bookfair is an ideal place to hold the event.
The programme of presentations and panels will also continue on Sunday, after the fair closes.
All bookfair spaces will be on one level in the light-filled Te Ara Hihiko arts complex at Massey University, Tasman St, Wellington. We’ve done our best to keep fees very affordable and provide flexible options for space sharing.
Bookings are open until 14 February 2016, or until all spaces are sold. Be in early to secure your spot!

At Photobook New Zealand we’re thrilled to see our event listed in the Writers’ Week section of the 2016 New Zealand Festival programme. With the buzz and visitors to Wellington during Festival time we hope this listing will do a lot to attract a wide range of people to the special displays of independent Australian and New Zealand photobooks and our wonderful programme of speakers and panels.
