Following last year’s highly successful exhibition we are going to be running the exhibition again during New Zealand Music Month (May 2020)  – From The Pit 2020. Just like last time, it will be a printed exhibition hanging in Auckland with an accompanying audio visual version.  We’re hoping we might also have some prints on display outside of Auckland – let us know if you can help with this!

The number of images in the exhibition will be determined by the venue space (to be announced later). 

The exhibition is open to submissions from photographers who regularly shoot live music in New Zealand. We are looking for photographs of New Zealand artists playing in New Zealand, taken anytime since January 2019.  We want the exhibition to be fresh and relevant. 

We launched the exhibition at the Taite Music Prize last year, so we’re especially interested in Taite winners and shortlisted artists!

If your image is chosen to be in the exhibition you’ll need to pay for the printing and framing, but you’ll get to keep the framed, mounted print after the exhibition.  They are a thing of beauty! 

We are pleased to share that The Black & White Box have kindly offered the same pricing for prints + frames we enjoyed at our inaugural exhibition at a special exhibition hanging price of $85.

Last year we were able to give a small rebate to each photographer thanks to one of our excellent sponsors to help offset the cost of printing.  Some photographers donated their rebate to our official charity, but this was not expected!

We need 3-5 images from you by 31st January 2020.  These need to be sized big enough to print A3 so we can check quality for printing.

The official entry for is here:   Once you have completed the entry form, send your images via dropbox/google drive folder or etc to
