Wellington's first photography festival in over a decade, aims to use photography as social commentary to discuss widely important issues we face in the world today. We are proud to be acting as a bridge between our audiences and many local and international organisations working for positive social change.
PHOTIVAL IS PROUD TO PRESENT 'BRINK FRONTIER'
We will be showcasing a selection of recent graduates work which we feel not only fits the theme of Brink but also demonstrates the outstanding upcoming photographic talent from Wellington's Massey University.

Chevron Hassett- Ko toku taumata tonu, ko Hawaiki
Chloe Burns Candy - It's the Little Things

Alongside the selected graduates we will also be showcasing three winners from our open call competition selected by our international panel of judges.
