Photival is the not-for-profit, Wellington social documentary photography festival focusing on social, economic and environmental issues.  Our aim is to show people thought provoking and inspiring photographic work and then give them the tools they need to engage with positive change. Visit the Previous page to check out what we did last year, the About page will give you more information or you can get in touch on the Contact Us.

This year we are hosting inspiring and engaging photographic talks, panel discussions, workshops and portfolio reviews with the aim of increasing visual literacy and social awareness. Our programme will present the best photographers, photographic educators, commentators, curators and editors in Aotearoa New Zealand, as well as drawing on expertise from a range of other sectors including journalism, NGOs and Technology. Join us for our diverse programme being hosted by Massey University and Flux at Wellington Museum.
