We're the first generation to feel the impact of these crises, and maybe the last who can do something about them. While that might feel overwhelming, our situation could be a portal to a brighter future. This exhibition aims to inspire change by showcasing local stories and contributing to new narratives about the planetary emergency.

Who can participate?
Earth Emotions is open to New Zealand Te Tau Ihu (Top of the South Island) residents over 13 yrs old, regardless of level of photography experience.

Does it cost anything to enter?
No, it's completely free

How many & what kinds of images can I submit?
You can submit up to 6 images.
They can be realistic, conceptual or abstract.

Themes include:

  • Experiences and Emotions - Personal experiences of the planetary crises and how they are affecting you, whānau, friends, community or the living world
  • Action and Response - Actions, emotional or spiritual responses to the planetary emergency
  • Future Visions - How you imagine the future
