Speed it up…Slow it down
A Fresh Look…
Regional Salon, and Exhibition
24-26 September 2021

With a view to creating for members, both a challenge and some excitement, the organising committee of this year’s regional salon have opted for a fresh approach.  

We are hoping that this challenge will be seen as an opportunity to explore and discover new photographic techniques, new genre, and to develop new skills. Therefore, we ask you to only submit images that have not been entered in any other New Zealand salon (they may however have been submitted to a club for evaluation).

Your submissions to this salon may be brand new, or they may be a fresh take on an old image; the choice is yours.


Who may enter:

  • Convention attendees.
  • Any PSNZ member, or PSNZ (Affiliated) Club members who reside in the North Island of New Zealand.

You may enter a maximum of : 4 Print Images, and/or 4 Digital Images

Price: $7.00 per image 

Judging: All images will be judged as Open, but additional awards will be given for images under the following themes: 


  • Speed; Fast or slow, your choice
  • A Serendipitous Moment; An unplanned (or maybe planned), fortunate occurrence
  • An unexpected angle or view; Challenge the way you capture a scene, try different angles, different perspectives or perhaps a different lens.


  • Accepted print images will be exhibited.
  • Accepted digital entries will be displayed on a High-Definition screen, as part of the exhibition.
  • An E Book will be compiled and distributed free of charge to all Regional Salon entrants.


  • Judges: Paul Byrne FPSNZ, ARPS, AFIAP, Meg Lipscombe FPSNZ, Matt Leamy LPSNZ
