Congratulations to our 2021 winner: Chloe Alderton, Master of Urban Planning (Professional) and Urban Design student.

Chloe’s winning photograph featured above is titled ‘The quarter acre dream’.

“We all observe fleeting moments and chance encounters in our daily lives. Moment by moment most of these dissolve into the ether. Sometimes one or two will stay with us. Very rarely are these moments, the special ones, captured.”

“The Simon Devitt Prize for Photography is both a fantastic opportunity for our students and a means to showcase the talents of New Zealand’s emerging creative minds.”
