Our look over this year’s best entries to the Nikon D-Photo Amateur Photographer of the Year competition continues with the Creative category shortlist – if you missed the winners’ gallery click here.

The ‘speed dating’ sessions are part of an all-day book fair coming ahead of the New Zealand Post Book Awards next month, and will involve readings, book signings and time for one-on-one discussion with the authors – very romantic.
The fair will take place on Saturday, July 28 from 10am to 4pm at the Shortland Street gallery; Friedlander’s session begins at 10.30am but don’t expect anything too intimate – she’ll be in discussion with husband Gerrard Friedlander and author Len Bell.
The photographer is one of New Zealand’s most celebrated living artists with a career spaning over 50 years.
During that time she has exhibited in many galleries here and abroad, collaborated on the Michael King book Moko – Maori Tattooing in the 20th Century, been the subject of the documentary film Marti: The Passionate Eye, established the Marti Friedlander Photographic Award and received the Arts Foundation Icon Award in 2011.
