Saturday 8 June is Auckland Photo Day, an interactive component of the festival that encourages everyone to contribute images which capture their day in Auckland. The submitted photographs create an "annual time capsule of the city and a valuable historical archive. A day in the life of Auckland as seen by the people of Auckland."

So take out your cameras, smartphones, ipads or even grandpa's old box brownie and start visually documenting our wonderful city!

For some inspiration here are a few photographic treasures from the Heritage Images collection.
