47th Dunedin Festival Exhibition

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.

Dunedin Festival Exhibition images selected

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.

Jenny Reeve, Chris Gable, and Derek Morrison discuss the Open prints.
Glenda Rees, Paul Sorrell, and Gary Speer discuss the finer details of a Natural History print.

Results of 46th Dunedin Festival of Photography

The doors have closed on another successful Dunedin Festival of Photography.  This is mostly due to the fantastic images that were entered and the great job the selectors did in putting together the collection of images for the print and projected exhibitions.

This year we had a total of 839 images (print and projected) from 94 entrants.  The final print and projected exhibitions comprised 355 accepted images.  Congratulations go to all the entrants who had images accepted, and in particular to those who were selected for honours and champion awards.

Full AVs of the exhibition are available:
