2008 Photo Hunt

2018 Photo Hunt

"Strength from struggle" was the theme for Heritage Week in 2019.

The judges noted that this year the photos reflected Christchurch’s social history. In a year that marks many milestones for New Zealand: the ending of the First World War, the 125th anniversary of women's suffrage, the Influenza epidemic and many others. It was interesting to get submissions that reflected our Christchurch stories over this time, right through to the present day.

We received several collections telling us about 1970s New Brighton, people at leisure and work, women at the Women’s immigration centre, lost Christchurch and new Christchurch.
