Christchurch Photo Hunt 2023
Each year Christchurch City Libraries runs the Photo Hunt to gather photographs from across the community, along with the unique stories of their creators.
Photo Hunt 2023's theme was Our Stories of Living and Learning.
It ran from Sunday 1 October to Tuesday 31 October, giving people the chance to share photographs and highlight the key moments in our city's history.
Here in Ōtautahi-Christchurch and Te Pātaka o Rākaihautū-Banks Peninsula we have many stories, from Ngāi Tahu and other iwi, European settlers, Pasifika and people of many ethnic and cultural backgrounds who have made this place home.
How the 2023 Christchurch Photo Hunt worked
Welcome to the 2023 Christchurch Photo Hunt. We are running things a bit differently this year. Here is how you can contribute your images to the Photo Hunt:
- Upload your photos to discoverywall.nz;
- Submit your photos through our online entry form.
There is no longer a process for dropping your photos at libraries. If you have photos you want to scan, you can:
- Come along to a Digitise Your Photos event at selected libraries during October;
- Scan your photos at Auahatanga | Creativity at Tūranga or at Te Hāpua Halswell Centre. Learn more about how to access the photo scanners.
Please note that bound, framed or mounted photos are unable to be scanned at the Digitise Your Photos events. This is because the scanner feeds through photos rather than being flatbed as with some other scanners. If you would like to contribute any of these types of photos please contact us directly at email@example.com.
