The ridiculously generous early bird tickets for a weekend of inspiration talks by top-level commercial photographers, both local and international, have almost sold out. You can currently grab a ticket to the Image Nation conference, hosted by the Advertising and Illustrative Photographers Association (AIPA), for as low as $69, but as of this morning there are only 20 such tickets left.
AIPA, NZIPP and students are eligible for the early bird price of $69, everyone else pick them up for the still very affordable price of $119 – get in quick before they're gone.
The event takes place on Friday, June 13 and Saturday, June 14 – confirmed speakers include international advertising photographer Simon Harsent, local photographers Emma Bass; Dean Zillwood; and Joseph Michael, published Geoff Blackwell, and five more to be confirmed.
The event will this year be held at Auckland's Q Theatre, and you can purchase tickets directly from its website.
Image Nation is always one of the most exciting and creatively energising events of the year and the AIPA has done a commendable job of keeping the prices accessible – if you're a working photographer, assistant, student, or anyone who takes their creativity seriously, you really should be there.
