The New Zealand Advertising Producers Group's mission is to promote and encourage best practice in the NZ Advertising Screen Industry.

We support our member base of producers, production companies and content makers, by providing access to resources such as best practice guidelines, sample documentation and health and safety compliance advice. 

Active NZAPG members volunteer their time, knowledge and expertise to support the Advertising Screen Industry.
We encourage open discussion and communications on key industry issues, and collaboration with all NZ advertising and film industry organisations.


Thank you to our wonderful NZAPG sponsors..

NZAPG AGM - Thurday 17th September 2020, in Auckland. Please save the date!


Aotearoa / New Zealand has just passed 100 days with no community transmission of COVID-19. It is not only the most beautiful place in the world to shoot, with the best crews, it’s now also the safest place in the world to shoot!
Yes ok, we are a bit biased, but COVID-19 has added another factor to the decision of where to shoot…. risk mitigation.

Our "go hard, go early" approach to the virus means that we are at our 'Level 1' or lowest level of response to the virus which means there are no physical distancing requirements and we are open for business.

It's great to be back and we're looking forward to welcoming more international prodcutions back too!
