We’re really excited to be presenting the 50th Festival of Photography this year! On 1 April, entries will open, and the Dunedin Photographic Society invites you to join the hundreds, if not thousands, of photographers who have participated in this exhibition since its inception in 1968.
This year, there will once again be both print and projected image sections, with Open, Natural History, Monochrome and Portraiture categories in both – plenty of options to cover all the photographic bases. Selected images will be curated into an exhibition that will be shown at the Dunedin Community Gallery from 3 – 11 June.
For more info and to enter from 1 – 16 April, go here – and good luck! With your help, we’re looking forward to producing an exhibiton to be proud of!
As most of our members will know, after we’ve run an exhibition, a field trip, a photo walk, or a big trip away, we usually gather images from those who participated to make a slideshow. Although we haven’t had many trips over the last year or two, we’re still collecting the slideshows, and you can view them any time, along with our seasonal and Festival exhibitions on our YouTube channel. For those who missed our slideshow of Arthur’s Pass, here you go!

The 47th Dunedin Festival of Photography was opened at a wine and cheese event tonight by Dunedin Photographic Society President, Kate Burton.
Kate thanked everyone for supporting the Festival with their entries; there was a record number of submissions which was great, but also meant the judges had to be a bit more ruthless with their selection. It has resulted in a fantastic exhibition however, and if you are able to visit the Dunedin Community Gallery between 5th and 10th November you will be able to enjoy the final results.
For those of you who are out of town, we have prepared digital versions of the exhibitions which can be viewed below.
Phew! After a huge day on Saturday, images for the 47th Dunedin Festival of Photography have been selected. Congratulations to all who have had an image, or images, selected for the exhibition. You may have heard through the grapevine that we had a record number of entries this year – a total of 1553 images across all the sections! A full list of exhibition acceptances will be available once the exhibition opens.
Entrants should now have received notification of their results. If you have not, please contact Melanie (webmaster.DPSNZ@gmail.com).
The exhibition will be open at the Dunedin Community Gallery from 5th-10th November, 10am-6pm. If you are unable to visit, we will make a slideshow of the digital and print exhibition available once the exhibition opens.
