Christchurch Photo Hunt

The Christchurch Photo Hunt is Christchurch City Libraries' annual heritage image competition.

We invited you to submit photos of people, places over time and events for our annual Christchurch Photo Hunt. Entries were open on Monday 1 October until Wednesday 31 October 2018. Winners in each category were announced on 1 December 2018.

You can view the 2018 photo hunt images on the Discovery Wall in Tūranga or on the website

Christchurch City Libraries' Photo Hunt was part of Beca Heritage Week, which took place from 15 to 22 October 2018 in Christchurch and Banks Peninsula.
