Probably sometime after all the City Winners are announced and sometime before the national finals.

in reply to Captain Woodrow .F Call:

Yes that's what Andrew said.

The grand finalists will be announced AFTER the city winners have all been announced - the last of which is Christchurch on the 8th of May - and BEFORE the grand final itself which takes place on 30 May.

I have no inside knowledge, but I expect it will be quite soon after the 8th. (In fact I expect grand finalists have probably already been selected, but the wildcards might not have been.)
