The following material relating to the study of New Zealand can all be considered for reviews in the CNZS Bulletin: books (academic and fiction), journals, films, conferences, artistic performances (including theatre, musical concerts, and ballet), as well as museum and artistic exhibitions. Conferences and exhibitions of significance may warrant greater consideration and therefore they could be covered as a report.

The Bulletin offers two awards each year of £100 for the best student submission from any subject within New Zealand Studies, and for the best student submission within any area of Maori Studies. Further details are available here.
