The exhibition for the 2018 Sigma D-Photo Amateur Photographer of the Year competition opened Thursday 26 July at Metro Gallery in Auckland and saw many from the photographic community come together in appreciation of our new winners.
The 2018 Sigma D-Photo Amateur Photographer of the Year has achieved unprecedented success, with 13,329 photographs entered. The judges have had the mammoth task of sifting through these images, making some very tough decisions along the way. We have narrowed it down to the top ten images in each category — and here they are.
If you follow D-Photo, you are no doubt familiar with the beautiful black-and-white portrait that graces the cover of issue 84. The image, taken by photographer Ilan Wittenberg in his Auckland studio, won the Portrait category at the 2018 Sony Alpha Awards, and went on to take out the Grand Prize.
With over 110 exhibitions and events across 60 venues citywide, the festival is certainly bountiful, but it can also be a little overwhelming. We have picked some of our favourite events in this year’s line-up to help you plan your own festival experience.
