Major Winners at the Canon Media Awards 2013

The best of New Zealand’s media were recognised tonight at the Canon Media Awards in Auckland, with the highly coveted Canon Newspaper of the Year award going to The New Zealand Herald.

The Canon Media Awards acknowledge the great people who shape New Zealand’s media landscape, celebrating press photographers, journalists, artists, designers, cartoonists and editors both in print and online.

It was a big night for The New Zealand Herald as they scooped a further five awards including Best News Site, Best Newspaper of the Year (with a circulation of over 30,000) and Best Newspaper Design. Fairfax’s stuff.co.nz won the highly anticipated award of Best Website.

The Bay of Plenty Times was awarded Best Newspaper of the Year (with a circulation under 30,000) while Best Newsstand Magazine was presented to New Zealand Geographic.

Yusuke Mizoguchi, Managing Director of Canon New Zealand, explains, “New Zealand has an outstanding selection of talent in the media. It is a pleasure to be able to showcase the best of the industry and to show our support for the industry as premier sponsor for another year.

“Tonight gave us the chance to reflect on the dedication that goes into our news and to commend the hugely talented and passionate people that make up New Zealand’s media landscape” says Mizoguchi.

David Fisher from The New Zealand Herald won Senior Reporter of the Year and was presented with the Canon Reporter Cup. Sam Boyer from The Dominion Post was named Junior Reporter of the Year.

A record 1,389 entries were received this year, containing more than 7,000 pieces of work. Twenty eight judges across New Zealand, Australia, Malaysia and the US assessed the work and selected the finalists and winners.
