Issues concerned with money

If I pay online, how do I prove that I have paid?

You need to include your surname and Entrant-ID in the bank reference data, so that it shows on our bank statement. Once we have found your remittance in our statement, you will then be emailed, confirming receipt of your entry.

How much does it cost to enter?

It costs $NZ5 for each photograph entered.   The price is the same for print and digital entries.   You may enter up to four images in each category.   So, for example, if you entered four prints in category one, and one digital in category five and three digitals in category six, the total cost would be $NZ40.

You may also order up to 10 catalogues at the cost price of $NZ38.

What happens if I submit an entry but do not send a fee?

We will email you to let you know that we have received an entry without a fee and tell you how to pay. If the fee is not received by the closing date your entry will be withdrawn. There are NO exceptions to this.

What methods of payment do you accept?

The Salon accepts cash, cheques and internet payments. It does not accept "over the counter" bank deposits, nor credit cards. If making payment by internet banking please deposit to the Salon's bank account: No:- 03 1510 0017915 00. Please be sure to show your Entrant Number and your surname in the details box.  Your Entrant Number can be found on the top of the entry page.

Does the Salon make a profit?

No.   The aim of the Salon is to advance and promote photography in New Zealand. Entry fees are designed so that the Salon breaks even.   Any excess of funds over expenses received by way of sponsorship etc. is returned to the competition in the form of equipment and process improvements.   Committee member's time is also provided free.
