About

who are we?

We are PLAY NZ, a community of NZ-based women with active YouTube channels.

With more than 40 members,  and well over 85,000 subscribers between us, we meet online regularly to network, learn, and collaborate.

PLAY NZ began in 2016, after Fern Paulussen (The Fern Life) searched for (and failed to find) a safe and welcoming space in which to meet fellow female content creators. Unwilling to accept that the community she longed for did not exist, Fern went ahead and created the PLAY NZ Facebook group that is now attracting new members every week.

who can join?

PLAY NZ encourages all New Zealand based women who upload parenting, lifestyle and/or appearance (beauty, fashion etc) videos to YouTube to join them in their closed Facebook group.

Membership costs nothing, and is obligation-free. In fact, we reckon you’d be crazy not to join us, as we offer our members all sorts of amazing opportunities (including free promotion right here on our website).

can we work together?

Sure! If you’re a content creator just come and join us on Facebook and we’ll take it from there.

Brands, companies, media, and anyone else who finds us interesting should get in touch with Fern by heading over to the Contact tab.

Whoever you are, we’d love to hear from you!

any further questions?

We’d be happy to answer them. Send us a message or tweet us and we’ll get right back to you.
