Entries for the 2013 Canon Media Awards smash
Organisers of the 2013 Canon Media Awards are gearing up for a standout celebration of the New Zealand newspaper and magazine industries this year after receiving a record number of entries.
Primary sponsor and organising body, the Newspaper Publishers’ Association (NPA), is delighted with the level of entries received featuring work from press photographers, journalists, feature writers, artists, designers and subeditors. Entries closed last Friday.
The Canon Media awards are the nation’s only major opportunity this year to recognise the best in New Zealand journalism.
The popular Canon Media Awards are scheduled for May 10 and represent an opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate outstanding achievements across the newspaper, magazine and online news media landscape, NPA Editorial Advisor Tim Pankhurst says.
“The bumper number of entries demonstrates the power of print journalism. The Canon awards celebrate the stories and photos that entertain, inform and inspire millions of Kiwis every day.
“At its core, the awards benchmark the vitality of print journalism – and this year’s record haul of entries is testament to the ongoing trust Kiwis place in their papers and magazines,” says Pankhurst.
This years’ event is being held at the Pullman Auckland and includes more than 60 awards including the coveted Canon Newspaper of the Year, Newsstand Magazine of the Year and Reporter of the Year awards.
