The Simon Devitt Prize for Photography was established in the School of Architecture and Planning in 2008, and is awarded annually in recognition of the best student photograph in the Faculty of Creative Arts and Industries. The exhibition is set to showcase unique photographic perspectives from some of New Zealand’s emerging creative minds with diverse backgrounds in fine art, music, dance, architecture, urban planning, and urban design.

Finalists for 2017 will be exhibited at the George Fraser Gallery Wednesday 24 May – Saturday 3 June 2017 as part of the Auckland Festival of Photography Programme. The winning entry will receive the Simon Devitt Prize for Photography 2017; a trophy, NZ$1,000 award, and a Canon camera.
