Wherever you are and whatever you do on January 1 watch out for photographers!
For 24 hours on January 1st, 2000 a team of over 80 top photographers, including seven children, will record New
Zealanders celebrating the millennium.
The best images will appear in a new book A Day in the Life of New Zealand, January 1, 2000, commemorating this
From midnight to midnight on January 1st, 2000, a team of over 80 of New Zealand's leading photographers will be
focusing on New Zealanders living the first day of the next 1000 years. Throughout our country, from the ordinary to the
extraordinary, New Years Eve firecrackers and newborns to special millennium events and family barbecues at the beach,
no photo opportunity will go unrecorded.
A Day in the Life of New Zealand will be a collection of stunning images by the country's best photographers, but above
all it will show New Zealand and New Zealanders as they are at the beginning of the new millennium-awake and asleep; at
work and on holiday; young and old; Maori, Pakeha and immigrants from around the world. It will be a stunning showcase
of our country-something for New Zealanders to be proud of and the rest of the world to envy.
Of the 25,000 photographs expected to be submitted only 200 will be chosen to appear in A Day in the Life of New
Zealand, January 1, 2000 which will be published in May 2000 by Random House New Zealand as a hardback priced $59.95.
