Best Website coup for Yahoo New Zealand

Best Website coup for Yahoo New Zealand at 2014 Canon Media Awards

Auckland, New Zealand: May 13, 2014 – Yahoo New Zealand has won the coveted Best Website award at the annual Canon Media Awards, recognising Yahoo’s excellence across all areas of digital journalism and innovative approach to social media, multimedia storytelling and mobile news.

The win proves that Yahoo New Zealand continues to set the standard for digital journalism, providing readers with an unparalleled depth and range of content in a device-agnostic format, enhancing the user experience and ensuring that New Zealanders can consume the latest news and views wherever they are, however they want to.

Judges Tony Gillies and Sue Carter said Yahoo NZ was a clear winner, expertly drawing the user in across desktop, phone and tablet, making it hard to resist the urge to read everything on the page.

“As an aggregator with a small team, Yahoo NZ does a fantastic job of focusing on breaking news and sport, while also running a wide variety of content that people are keen to know, or perhaps should know,” the judges said.

Louis Niven, Yahoo New Zealand General Manager Sales, is naturally delighted with the win.

“Kiwi digital audiences now expect the best whenever they are online, no matter which device they are using. Yahoo New Zealand has really taken up the challenge to deliver the best content, on whatever device, to all Kiwis across the country and around the world,” he said.

“I’m proud that after seven years in the market we have created significant brand loyalty with our audiences. Over half of all online Kiwis visit Yahoo each month1 and we have built a reputation for delivering breaking news from across New Zealand and around the world as it happens.”

The Canon Media Awards are the New Zealand publishing industry’s premier awards, held annually to encourage, showcase and acknowledge the best of New Zealand’s newspapers, magazines and websites, as well as the work of feature writers, columnists, cartoonists, reviewers and photographers. The awards are hotly contested, with nearly 1400 entries encompassing 7000 individual pieces of work, entered in 56 categories in the 2013 awards.
