Peter Turner Scholarship in Contemporary Photography

The Peter Turner Scholarship was established in memory of the late Peter Turner; esteemed author, editor, publisher, curator, and former teacher at the Wellington School of Design. While in New Zealand he contributed to public knowledge and understanding of the medium of photography through writing, teaching, public lectures, and curated exhibitions. This annual scholarship honours and remembers his special regard for those photographic practices he termed lyric, personal, or poetic documentary.

This is a postgraduate scholarship. You will be studying a Master of Fine Arts or a Master of Maori Visual Arts with a focus on contemporary photography. You will preferably have a creative lens-based practice underpinned by social, cultural, political, or community concerns.
