New Publisher For House Of The Year Magazines

Registered Master Builders Federation Announces New Publisher For House Of The Year Magazines

The Registered Master Builders Federation (RMBF) is pleased to announce a new publishing agreement with New Zealand Magazines to produce the prestigious regional and national House of the Year magazines.

RMBF Chief Executive Chris Preston says the Federation is delighted with the partnership and believes readers will enjoy the new-look magazines that showcase the best homes built and renovated each year by registered master builders.

"This year readers will be able to enjoy better magazines with more information, photographs and practical advice for those considering building and renovating," says Mr Preston.

New Zealand Magazine's Publisher and Chief Executive Sarah Sandley says the 2004 House of the Year magazines will have a fresh design, helpful tips for readers and enhanced editorial content.

"Readers will be able to view the best homes in their local area through the four regional magazines, and the best homes around the country in the national magazine."

The magazines will be sold through booksellers, supermarkets and other retail outlets with a recommended retail price of $5.95 each for the regional titles and $7.50 for the national magazine.

The regional magazines will be on sale in September and will feature House of the Year entries, Gold, Silver and Bronze Awards and category winners within the following regions:

* Auckland (Northland, Auckland Region, Coromandel)

* Upper North Island (Waikato, Bay of Plenty, Gisborne, Tauranga, Rotorua and Taupo)

* Lower North Island (Taranaki, Wanganui, Manawatu, Hawkes Bay, Wellington and Wairarapa)

* South Island (Nelson, Marlborough, Canterbury, Ashburton, South Canterbury, Westland, Otago, Gore and Southland)

The national House of the Year magazine will be on sale in November and features all of the national finalists and national winners of the House of the Year competition.

New Zealand Magazines publishes the New Zealand Listener and the New Zealand Woman's Weekly and is a division of APN Specialist Publications NZ Ltd, which is a wholly owned subsidiary of APN Holdings NZ Ltd (formerly Wilson & Horton Ltd).

The Registered Master Builders Federation is New Zealand's premiere building and construction organisation, providing industry leadership, training and high quality customer services including the Master Build 7 Year Guarantee. There are 22 Registered Master Builder Associations around New Zealand.

There are currently 1650 registered master builder member companies throughout New Zealand, building over 50% of residential and 80% of commercial properties in New Zealand.
