The North Shore National Salon of Photography was established in 1995 by the North Shore Photographic Society Incorporated (NSPS). The NSPS created the Salon to promote the art of photography in New Zealand through a prestigious, national photographic event each year.
The NSPS, which was founded in 1954, now has nearly 100 members, ranging from amateurs to professionals and from beginners to experts. Affiliated with the Photographic Society of New Zealand (PSNZ), it is part of a network of photographic clubs and societies across New Zealand.
Each year, the NSPS has run a competition for New Zealand photographers, with the 2022 Salon attracting 2172 entries from entrants including members of 50 photographic clubs and societies from Whangarei to Southland and overseas. The Salon convenes independent panels of selectors to judge entries in various categories, with accepted digital images being publicly exhibited, and all accepted photographs are reproduced in an attractive catalogue.
The Salon's competitions traditionally attract a diverse range of participants, primarily consisting of amateur photographers from various photographic clubs and societies. However, it is important to note that the Salon warmly welcomes entries from professionals as well, and club membership is not a prerequisite for participation. In fact, in recent years, we have witnessed a significant influx of first-time entrants who are not affiliated with any specific organizations or societies, further enhancing the inclusivity and diversity of our competition.
PLEASE NOTE; Kindly take note that owing to the substantial postage expenses, we regrettably cannot extend the offer of mailing awards beyond New Zealand. Should you desire, we can provide an emailed certificate for printing upon request. However, we are no longer able to arrange for the postage of trophies, medals, certificates or prints. In cases where your image is printed and showcased, we can send it in a tube, but please note that the Salon cannot cover the associated cost. We apologise for this modification, which is necessitated by the prevailing postal rates.
This also includes catalogues, we are happy to post within New Zealand but offshore options are not available.
