SEAFANZ is an independent non-profit incorporated society based in New Zealand and is dedicated to the pursuit of underwater photography.

SEAFANZ currently sponsors a bi-monthly underwater photographic competition which is run by  Dive New Zealand magazine.

SEAFANZ is administered by non paid volunteers and relies on the generosity of its sponsors to maintain resources for members.

In the Auckland region of New Zealand, SEAFANZ organizes a monthly 'show and tell' meeting to bring together underwater photographers of all levels in order to encourage the pursuit of underwater photography in line with the aims of the society.
