For us at TZIPAC, an important facet of photography is rooted in reflecting and exalting over our every day life, its many beauties and great diversity in ways of life around the world. Unicef, whose’s mission is to create a better world for our children, who are undoubtedly the most deserving of a chance to live, love and laugh. As such, we will be donating 100% of the net proceeds from this competition to UNICEF New Zealand. So please, join us, share with us your personal vision of life, love and laughter and, at the same time, help us to make a difference to the community.

Student filmmakers are also encouraged to apply. High school filmmakers are encouraged to submit their entries to the 5th iteration of the Heartland High School Film Competition.
