Registration

  • We use the terms “Registration” and “Membership” interchangeably. For us, they are the same thing. This is a difference from some events that sell “Tickets”. When you join the Worldcon, you become a Member, with all the rights and responsibilities that entails.
  • Please see the pricing tables below for your upgrade paths.
  • If you see a problem then please contact us at registrations@conzealand.nz and we will fix it.

Instructions

Account Creation

  • An account is not a membership in CoNZealand. It simply gets you into the system.
  • Our system depends on your email address being accurate, and accessible by you. So during your account creation phase, we ask for your email, and then we send you an email with a url link in it to log into our Members site. The link lasts for 10 minutes, so please be in a position to receive emails, and get to a web browser.
  • After logging in, you can then choose which Membership you wish to take out.

Logging in and taking out Memberships

  • Enter your email address, and then we send you an email with a link in it to log into our Members site. The link lasts for 10 minutes, so please be in a position to receive emails, and get to a web browser.
  • You can create multiple new memberships against one email address. This feature is usually intended for families with one person creating the new memberships. In general we suggest one email address per person.
  • You will need to pay a minimum of NZ$75, but then you can pay by installments.

Reviewing / Upgrading your Membership/s

  • Once you have logged into the membership site, you can Review your memberships to see what upgrades are available for your Memberships.
  • Similarly to new Memberships, you can select the Upgrade you wish.
    • You will receive a pop up asking you to confirm. If you accept, then your Membership will be upgraded to the type you have chosen.
    • On the next page you can then elect to make a full payment, or pay by installments.

Postal Registration

Need to make a payment?

Payment by cheque can now only be made by US cheques in US dollars. You can download our Postal form, and send it to us. Due to changes by our NZ bank we can no longer accept cheques in NZ dollars.  (Our US bank is still accepting cheques.)

    • Please contact us for alternate payment arrangements if the options listed here are not suitable for you.
    • Please download and fill out the Postal Registration form.
    • You can print it and fill it out by hand
    • OR you can use the form fields in the PDF form to type into the fields, then print it out and send it to us.
Supporting Membership

A Supporting Membership is for people who cannot attend the convention physically. You will receive all our publications. This also comes with the right to nominate and vote in the Hugo Awards in 2020. You can also vote in Site Selection for the 2022 Worldcon. You can always upgrade your supporting membership to attending memberships, at the price difference at the time.

Please note: The deadline to purchase a CoNZealand membership allowing you to make nominations for the Hugo Awards has now passed.

Attending Membership

An Attending Membership is for people who can attend the convention physically. There are a number of different types of Attending Memberships. Attending Memberships are all inclusive. You do not have to pay anything more for autographs, attendance to panels, dances and so on. Note that some external events that are affiliated with, but not organised by, CoNZealand may have extra fees.

You will receive all our publications. This also comes with the right to nominate and vote in the Hugo Awards in 2020. You can also vote in Site Selection for the 2022 Worldcon. If you want to make any Hugo nominations you need to purchase a CoNZealand membership by 31 December 2019, 11.59pm PST.

  • Young Adult Attending is based on being born in 2000.
  • Unwaged Attending is a NZ resident of any age who does not have a consistent wage. This includes students, retirees, beneficiaries etc. Please contact us if you have questions about this.
    • We will trust that if you become waged by the convention, that you will upgrade to a Full Attending.

Note: Kid In Tow does NOT come with voting rights in the Hugo Awards or Site Selections. Please also note our Minors Onsite Policy.

Sorry, but we do not offer full or partial refunds. Please see Membership Transfers below.

If you were not a pre-supporter of the NZ in 2020 bid, and you did not vote in Site Selection at Worldcon 76, then these are the prices that apply to you.

Please note, all prices are in New Zealand dollars.

If you have purchased a membership and wish to gift it to another person we are happy to fully transfer the membership. To affect a transfer:

  • The person wanting to transfer, and the person receiving the transfer need to contact us at registrations@conzealand.nz
  • The transfer is of all rights that go along with that membership. If any of those rights have been exhausted, e.g. by nominating or voting in the Hugos, then those rights are not available anymore.
  • If the transferer wants to then be a supporting member in order to get rights for Hugo nominations, voting and Site Selection, then they will need to take out a fresh supporting membership.

 

If you are no longer able to attend the convention we encourage you to sell your membership on many of the available fan forums. We can provide confirmation to a buyer of the status of the membership if required. Once the sale is complete contact us and we will be able to transfer the membership to the purchaser.

Partial refunds are not able to be processed. i.e. wanting to change from an attending to a supporting membership. You will need to arrange the sale of the attending membership and then purchase a separate supporting membership.

If your feel that there are extraordinary circumstances for your inability to attend the convention, please email registrations@conzealand.nz.

To activate Installments, you can select an attending membership. The minimum amount you can pay is NZ$75, you can then pay the rest off over time. Your price is locked to the price when you started the installment plan.

If you fail to complete payments by a few weeks before the convention, your membership will become a Supporting Member, with no refunds for the amounts paid over the Supporting rate.
