E-News – Issue 16:

Welcome to the 16th newsletter from the PSNZ Hutt2019 National Convention team. It is great to see that most of the people who signed up with the mailing list are still sticking with us. We trust that you are enjoying reading about the event, and we hope that you will be making up your mind shortly to register as it only 3 months away from opening. In this and future issues we will endeavour to cover workshops and presenters that haven’t already been featured. We also have information on the Sunday only option which will be made available shortly.

PSNZ Canon National Exhibition queries

Everyone should know by now that entries for the PSNZ Canon National Exhibition are open, with entries closing in just under a month on February 2019. What people may not know is that we are not organising it. That task has been picked up by a team mainly from Wellington Photographic Society. Therefore if you have any questions regarding entries into the National Exhibition can you please direct to the convenor Glen Innes at gleninnesphotography@gmail.comrather than using the contact form on the Convention website.  

Sunday only options

Back in November we indicated that early in 2019 we would offer one day options to the convention. We are pleased to advise that from Saturday 9thFebruary, we are offering a Sunday only option. This will enable people to attend the Sunday morning partner presentations (to be announced at the end of February), visit the trade area, attend one of the most important AGM’s in recent years and the Sunday afternoon offsites. The option does not include the CRK Honours Banquet as that is already available as a separate option. The Sunday only option will cost $160.00. If you wish to attend the Sunday option and the Banquet you will need to tick both options when registering.

Featured Workshop – Going beyond PSNZ  (D1W7)

Outside of PSNZ there is a whole world of salons for those that want to showcase their photography further. But how do you choose what to enter, and more importantly what to enter. In this Friday afternoon session Julia Home APSNZ EFIAP BPSA, will take you through the process of international salons including those run under both FIAP and the Photographic Society of America.
