Education Gazette won engineering journalism award

NZ Education Gazette wins engineering journalism award

New Zealand Education Gazette editor John Gerritsen won the Award for Excellence in Engineering Journalism at last night’s New Zealand Engineering Excellence Awards at TE PAPA, Wellington.

The award acknowledges the contribution of New Zealand’s media to the publics’ understanding of the engineering industry. The Award for Excellence in Engineering Journalism is open to print, radio and television journalists and the winner receives $5,000.00 in prize money.

Judge Venetia Sherson said John’s article “Engineering a Future” is a well-researched and balanced examination of the current workforce crisis facing engineering in New Zealand – and the challenges the education sector faces in trying to meet the needs of industry.

“Readers are well served by John’s thorough reporting and narrative style. The story could have been dry and uninteresting; instead it is an engaging appraisal of a subject that should be a concern to all New Zealanders”.

The third New Zealand Engineering Excellence Awards are the premier awards for New Zealand engineering professionals. The awards are presented in two major areas: Individual Awards, that recognise leadership, entrepreneurship, and our young engineers; and Category Awards, that recognise achievement in the various industry areas, together with a Supreme Award for the best of the Category winners.

The New Zealand Engineering Excellence Awards are hosted by a consortium of five partners and 10 contributing organisations. The partners are: Centre for Advanced Engineering (CAE); Association of Local Government Engineering New Zealand Incorporated (INGENIUM); Electricity Engineers Association of New Zealand (EEA); Association of Consulting Engineers New Zealand (ACENZ); and the Institution of Professional Engineers New Zealand Inc (IPENZ).
