Top 16 Finalists

Much of Britomart’s unique character comes from the contrasts and relationships between its buildings: historic and modern, bold and intimate, public and private. Most of the 18 historic buildings throughout the precinct date from between 1880 and 1920. Many were built as warehouses and storerooms for Auckland’s early merchant industry. They range from the magnificent Imperial Baroque of the Chief Post Office to the restrained Art Deco elegance of the Maritime Building on Quay Street.

Competition details:

Submit a photo of any building (or part of a building) within Britomart and you’ll be in to win a $500 prize pack including goodies and vouchers from Nike, Huffer, Ostro and more. The winner will also have their work featured in the next Britomart magazine.
