Welcome Artists:

If you are an artist or photographer and are interested in contributing a work or works to the display please contact us for further information.

No commission for works sold will be charged by the NZ Mountain Film Festival. Selling of works is optional for artists and photographers. The NZMFF gets its value from the display through visitors’ enjoyment of viewing the Artists’ and Photographers’ work.

The artists’ and photographers’ work should reflect the festival’s theme “Adventurous Sports and Lifestyles” and depict the world’s outdoor spaces, mountains, lakes, sea and rivers as well as outdoor people, sports and scenery.

So far, we’re delighted to confirm displays in 2021 from;
