Capture Auckland’s Diversity By Lantern Light

26 JANUARY 2006

Capture Auckland’s Diversity By Lantern Light

The Auckland Festival of Photography proudly presents LANTERN, a new addition to TAKING PART in this year's expanded festival programme. LANTERN invites all Aucklanders to capture the vibrant culture of the AsiaNZ Chinese Lantern Festival in Auckland.

LANTERN is an opportunity for all photographers; established, emerging, youth and novice to take a photograph of the many elements that come together to create this great spectacle of light and colour in Albert Park from February 10th to 12th. The AsiaNZ Chinese Lantern Festival attracts over 100,000 people over three days, whose diversity and spirit make great subjects for photographic images.

The AsiaNZ Chinese Lantern Festival lights up the Auckland City skyline, with a warm glow from hundreds of lanterns. The selected exhibition photos of LANTERN will immortalize the people's view of the Lantern Festival, show its development over time, and highlight how public spaces can be filled in a public-spirited celebration of Asian culture in the City.

The LANTERN exhibition will be held at The Aotea Centre during the Photography Festival
in June 2006.

Submissions for LANTERN close on February 26 and can be sent to
"Lantern" 2006, Auckland Festival of Photography, PO Box 147-095, Ponsonby, Auckland
or via the website:
First ten selected images will receive a large format poster.

The Auckland Festival of Photography is a highlight of the annual arts calendar; the festival provides Auckland's only free 3 week arts and cultural festival, in venues all over the Auckland region including Auckland City, North Shore City and Waitakere City.
2006 festival dates are 2nd - 24th June 2006.

Creative Exposure Festival 2006 is supported by ASIA NZ Foundation, North Shore City Council, Creative Communities, Community Organisation Grants Scheme, Waitakere City Council, Nikon Camera’s, Triangle TV, Lion Foundation, Philips, Adshel, and The ASB Community Trust.

Brahms' warm and exquisitely subtle Symphony No. 3 in F major, Wagner's irrepressibly sentimental symphonic poem Siegfried Idyll, and Sibelius' chilling and immensely challenging Violin Concerto in D minor exemplify distinct stages of development in a tangled and convoluted series of skirmishes that came to define subsequent disputes about the nature of post-Romantic orchestral writing well into the following century.
