Live, Love & Laughter

Rejoicing in the beauty of Life

Our very first charity based competition where 100% of the net proceed will be donated to Unicef New Zealand.


TZIPAC is proud to launch the inaugural Live, Love and Laughter photography competition. This is the first in our series of charity based events. For us at TZIPAC, an important facet of photography is rooted in reflecting and exalting over our every day life, its many beauties and great diversity in ways of life around the world. Unicef, whose's mission is to create a better world for our children, who are undoubtedly the most deserving of a chance to live, love and laugh. As such, we will be donating 100% of the net proceeds from this competition to UNICEF New Zealand. So please, join us, share with us your personal vision of life, love and laughter and, at the same time, help us to make a difference to the community.


UNICEF’s mission is to create a better world for children by promoting the rights and wellbeing of every child. Together with its partners, UNICEF works in 190 countries and territories to translate that commitment into practical action, focusing special effort on reaching the most vulnerable and excluded children, to the benefit of all children, everywhere. 


“TheTZIPAC Photography Competition is a great way for artists to express their creativity and the theme this year really ties in with the work we do at UNICEF NZ to protect and nurture children...We are really pleased to be selected as the chosen cause for this year’s competition as 2014 will be a challenging year for children given the ongoing crisis in Syria as well as conflicts erupting in South Sudan and the Central African Republic. We are grateful for the support of TZIPAC  and wish all of the entrants the best of luck."

Dennis McKinlay, Executive Director at UNICEF New Zealand.
