    If you have been a full member for more than three years it might be time to think about NZCS Accreditation.  You'll need to have reached a level of world-class visual storytelling expertise that reaches past professional competence and into the top level of cinematography in your chosen field. 

    NZCS accreditation means recognition in the international camera community as a master cinematographer with a substantive body of work that reaches a consistently high, world-class standard.  To find out more read our NZCS accreditation overview. 

    Accredited members are the only people who are allowed to use the letters NZCS after their name.

    2017 accreditations will be awarded at the New Zealand Cinematography Awards dinner in October. (The judging process is completely separate from the New Zealand Cinematography Awards).

    To apply, download and complete the application form, and  submit your application, supporting documents and media to the address provided.

    Register early to give yourself time to prepare and send your application.

    Building on the runaway success of the 2016 Awards, this year's NZCS Awards for cinematography will be an even better event. 

    The NZCS Awards are unique because they are the camera community's own awards, celebrating cinematography across 14 categories:  

    1.   Student films 8.   Documentaries
    2.   Experimental and installation 9.   Dramatised documentaries
    3.   Music videos 10. Specialised cinematography
    4.   News and current affairs 11. Commercials
    5.   Magazine, lifestyle, reality 12. Teleseries
    6.   Corporate and educational 13. Telefeatures
    7.   Short films 14. Feature films

    When you enter, your work will be evaluated, recognised and celebrated by your peers. Because there can be more than one gold, silver, or bronze award in each category there is room for you to win an award no matter what genre or format you work in, or what your budget was. 

    Register now - media must be submitted by 1 August 2017.  

    The awards will be celebrated at a prestigious black tie dinner in the Grand Tea Room of the Heritage Hotel Auckland on Saturday 14 October 2017 (tickets sold separately).

    The NZCS Awards encourage, recognise, and build world-class cinematography in New Zealand and they are only possible thanks to the enthusiasm of a growing family of sponsors that will be announced shortly.
