Submissions for #NZWF22 will open on 1 February 2022.
Since 2015 NZ Web Fest has curated and celebrated online entertainment. Since 2017 the festival has been a proud participant in the Web Series World Cup.
We accept submissions in open, international and New Zealand categories. NZ Web Fest also runs a Pitch competition open to international and NZ series projects.
In 2022 we're excited to expand with the addition of FIVE new submission categories for trailers and podcasts - which we expect to flow through to the creation of at least 10 new award categories.
In addition, we've increased the number of awards in the web series fiction categories to better reward the technical skills which make the shows so enjoyable.
#NZWF22 will present awards, information about which is noted in individual category listings. Some categories are open to NZ entries only, some to non-NZ entries only, and some to all-comers.
All award winners receive trophies, and our Pitch competition presents cash prizes.
*** Please note ***
We DO NOT offer fee waivers or discounts, except as part of promotions (follow our social media channels for these), or as part of arrangements with partner festivals. Don't waste your time asking :)
