Registrations for South Island Regional open on February 10th.
Registrations for North Island Regional open on March 10th.

All members of PSNZ and PSNZ Affiliated Clubs are welcome to attend these conventions, along with any other person with a keen interest in photography.  They are not restricted to those members and clubs that are in the island that the convention is taking place. These events are a great way to meet and network with other like-minded people who share a passion for photography.
