Handle the Jandal

Handle the Jandal

NZ Music Video Awards Paramount Theatre Tuesday 16 September 2003

Entries being accepted NOW and close Monday 4th August

It's that time of year again - Radioactive 89 FM proudly announce the return of the 'Handle the Jandal' music video awards!

Now in it’s 4th year – Radio Active’s Handle the Jandal is fast becoming an institution for New Zealand music video making. Entries are open nationwide to anyone with a video for a song by a New Zealand musician or band of any musical genre. The catch – no government funding allowed! The videos entered are made only with available resources, kiwi ingenuity and the old sniff of an oily rag! The results of this are truly astounding – this event never fails to entertain, inspire, and help New Zealand filmmakers and musicians on their road to creative success.

In 2003 we return to The Paramount theatre for the ‘Handle the Jandal’ Music Video Awards, for the final showcase of the finest amateur music videos from all over Aotearoa. Here the audience will vote to decide who will receive the prestigious award of The Golden Jandal!
