    Ray Edwards holds his Al Guilford Emerging Cinematographer Award presented by Leon Narby NZCS.

    We are looking forward to celebrating you and your fellow colleagues’ best cinematography from the past two years at the prestigious 6th NZCS Awards and after party on 13 May 2023. 

    Winning a Gold, Silver or Bronze NZCS award from one, or more, of the various categories is recognition amongst cinematographers that you have created a work of art that stands out and deserves acknowledgement.

    It's all about what you shot within the production's genre and format. What's more, 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 your budget was. 

    An NZCS Award is also a career builder, automatically appearing on your IMDB profile for all to see.
