Call for entries to Qantas Media Awards

Organisers of the 2004 Qantas Media Awards, which include categories for arts journalism and photography sponsored by Creative New Zealand, are now calling for entries.

Creative New Zealand sponsors the arts journalism and photography categories to encourage both the quality and quantity of arts coverage in the New Zealand media.

This year, there are two new arts awards: one for best arts page or section and another for best arts review.

"The standard of arts pages has increased over the years and we'd like to recognise all those involved in producing the best arts pages in the country - from the sub-editor through to the reporters, arts editor and photographers," says Debbie Hannan, Communications Services Manager of Creative New Zealand.

"We also want to make it clear that the entries must be stories or photographs of New Zealand arts and artists because that's what we're about: promoting New Zealand arts."

The following is the list of the Creative New Zealand-sponsored awards:

PRINT

* Columnist - Arts reviews (New Zealand performing arts, heritage arts, visual arts, craft/object art, literature), excluding film and television * Feature Writer - Arts newspaper feature and magazine feature (New Zealand performing arts, heritage arts, visual arts, craft/object art, literature), excluding film and television * Photography - Arts picture, senior and junior (New Zealand performing arts, heritage arts, visual arts, craft/object art, literature), excluding film and television * Best specialist page or section - Arts pages/sections (quality of writing, editing, New Zealand content, design, images).
