The Composers Association of New Zealand (CANZ) is a body that lobbies for the interests of New Zealand composers. Through its affiliations with the International Society for Contemporary Music (ISCM) and the Asian Composers League, CANZ provides its members with opportunities to participate in international music festivals. The organisation’s flagship event is the annual CANZ Nelson Composers Workshop, a four-day gathering of New Zealand’s emerging composers. CANZ members receive the yearbook, Canzona, and the bi-monthly newsletter, Canzonetta. The association presents two prizes: the KBB Citation for Services to New Zealand Music and the CANZ Trust Fund Award.
