Sometimes a single unique perspective can alter the course of history in 1/125th of a second. James Frankham, editor of New Zealand Geographic will speak to the pictures that changed the world forever.

This talk is being hosted, free of charge, as part of the New Zealand Geographic Photographer of the Year 2014 exhibition in Cathedral Square.

The very best images from five years of previous competitions, and the finalists from the thousands of entries in the 2014 competition are displayed in large format, high-quality prints in an assemblage of purposely fit-out containers and in an ‘image forest’, all under the protection of a large format sail. This is an all-weather attraction, suitable for all ages to enjoy.

Each year, the New Zealand Geographic Photographer of the Year competition attracts New Zealand’s best photographers, amateur and professional alike, who seek to describe our society and environment in original and insightful ways. This is New Zealand’s pre-eminent photographic competition, attracting more than 3000 entrants each year.

View the visually spectacular 2014 finalists across the four categories; Wildlife, Landscape, Society & Culture, and Photo Story. Explore and experience New Zealand’s people, places and flora and fauna, and be challenged and surprised by what you encounter.

Put yourself in the judge’s chair and vote for your favourite images on site using interactive screens provided – the nation’s favourite image will be awarded the People’s Choice award when the winners are announced in late October.

New Zealand Geographic Photographer of the Year 2014 is proudly supported by the Christchurch City Council through the Transitional City Projects Fund and Ever Evolving Events.
