Cuba Photo Contest!

In 2019 we celebrate 20 years of diplomatic relations with Aotearoa New Zealand.

To commemorate this event, we´ll be partnering with Havana Coffee Works to launch a Cuba Photo Contest and  arrange prizes for the best three photos, providing Cuban art crafts, various delicacies and to host the winner with partner, family or companion of their choice, at our embassy for a Cuban meal and experience with our ambassador and staff at a moment of their convenience during the year 2019.

All entries must be received by February 24th. Best photos will be selected for an exhibition that will take place at Victoria University of Wellington, Faculty of Architecture and Design at the end of March.

Only digital photos will be accepted. You may send them to or upload them to any cloud storage service and send us the link to the same email address for us to download the photos.

Photos that result elected for the exhibition will be framed in 3:2, 1:1 and 16:9 format. Any other format that we receive will be adapted to the closest one among them. 

All kiwis and residents in New Zealand that have been to Cuba are welcomed to participate. The idea is to send your best shots of Cuba.

Themes for the contest are Landscapes, Cities, People and Culture.

Every entry should be accompanied by personal and contact information of the participant.

By sending an entry, the participant accepts the terms and conditions of this contest.

Participants are the sole responsible for any copyright infringement of the entries provided.

The caption must be complete and accurate, sufficient to convey the circumstances in which the photograph was taken.

The Embassy of Cuba will hold the right to use the relevant photos for exhibitions inside New Zealand and for digital display in our website or social media profiles.

All digital files must come in JPEG or .jpg format and must be at least 1,600 pixels wide (if a horizontal image) or 1,600 pixels tall (if a vertical image).

The submission must not, in the sole and unfettered discretion of the organizer, contain obscene, provocative, defamatory, sexually explicit, or otherwise objectionable or inappropriate content.
