If you have been a professional Cinematographer in any field for a minimum of 8 years including at least the last 3 years as an NZCS Cinematographer member, 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.
To apply, download and complete the application form, and submit your application, supporting documents and media to the address provided.

Applications close 31 August 2023.
The accreditation recipients for 2023 will be announced during the "7th Annual NZCS" ceremony. Because we had our Awards ceremony earlier this year, the next one will be in October 2024. However, recipients will be able to use their NZCS acronym on their credits as soon as they are accepted. (Note: the judging process is completely different from the New Zealand Cinematography Awards).
