New Zealand’s only Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer, Melanie Burford, will open the New Zealand Geographic Photographer of the Year awards night with a keynote address.
A native of Greymouth, Burford worked as a photojournalist in New Zealand then travelled to the United States where she was part of a team at the Dallas Morning News that won a Pulitzer for coverage of the aftermath of Cyclone Katrina, and later, an Emmy award for her videography too. She has taught at Columbia University, University of Bergen, NPPA and National Geographic Photo Camps and more. Burford will present on the highlights and challenges of telling stories through images, and getting great work published.
This will be the biggest night for photography in New Zealand this year—now’s your chance to be part of it.
