New Zealand Geographic ADMIN July 3, 2012
Have you got what it takes to be a New Zealand Geographic photographer?

The New Zealand Geographic Group invites you to post your society, landscape and wildlife photographs shot in New Zealand territory. The editor reviews all frames and will contact you (and pay you) if one is chosen for publication. Images must be taken in New Zealand territory and we welcome professionals and amateurs. Please add images to Your Map and INVITE FRIENDS!!!

Group Description

The New Zealand Geographic Flickr Group is the ultimate training ground for aspiring photographers, stemming from New Zealand Geographic magazine — see We invite you to post your photographs of New Zealand subjects — our culture as well as our wildlife and landscapes. Images must be taken in New Zealand territory, including Antarctica and dependencies in the Pacific and we welcome both professional and amateur photographers.

Submitting images to this group does not surrender copyright in any form to New Zealand Geographic magazine — we are here to support and enhance the practice of photography in New Zealand, not steal your work. If an image is chosen from the group for publication (three are chosen every two months) you will be contacted for permission, a brief interview and high resolution files (including the RAW file). An image from the group published in the Viewfinder section is rewarded with an editorial fee of NZ$200.

Please include geotags, or simply go to "Organise & Create" in the Flickr menu and hit "Your Map" to drag images from your photostream onto the correct location.

Every two months, three photos will be selected for publication in the Viewfinder section of New Zealand Geographic magazine at full editorial rates, to be seen over a quarter million readers.

Member’s can also pick their favourites to be considered for publication.

Photographers are encouraged enter into the New Zealand Geographic Photographer of the Year competition 2013 which is free to enter and touts $7000 in cash prizes, plus a Heritage Expedition adventure up for grabs.



A GROUP INVITATION can be given out by members to photographers of New Zealand subjects who are not in the group. Paste the code below into the comments field of a non-member’s photograph:

When your image has accrued three or more Member's Picks, post it into the Member's Pick thread. Paste the code below into the comments field of a member’s photograph to nominate it:

Editor's Selection

The EDITOR'S SELECTION is the ultimate recognition of the group, the actual publication of the photo in the coveted Viewfinder department of New Zealand Geographic, published once every two months and selected from Photo of the Week winners and Member's Picks. The published member will receive an editorial fee and a complimentary copy of the magazine.

Group Rules

Rules for NZ Geographic

1. Post up to TWO pictures per day. Members are encouraged to engage in this forum, comment on others photos and make member's picks where worthy.

2. Do not post images which fall below the "safe" limits defined by Flickr.

3. Photographs should reflect the country's geography, it's landscape, wildlife and society. Pictures that are blatant advertising, illegal or antisocial are not acceptable.
