Anyone can become a member of the NZGDA

Game and Interactive studios are categorised into Membership Tiers based on the number of full-time employees + contractors that work in the studio.

Individuals can get a membership for free through their employer or they can buy a membership directly from the NZGDA.

Other groups such as media, partnership businesses, government departments, and educational institutions can also join as organisational members.

Students and recent graduates (< 2 years post grad) can obtain student memberships at a discounted rate.
