The results were announced at a gala dinner on Friday, 25 July at Awapuni Racecourse in Palmerston North. The event was attended by members of the local building industry and the Manawatu-Wanganui Region Registered Master Builders.

There were 11 Gold Award winners from Manawatu-Wanganui which will now be assessed alongside Gold Award winners from across the country to find the National Gold Reserve finalists, to be announced in early September.
