Do You Have a Kapa Haka Addiction?

Tuesday 15 January, 2013

Do You Have a Kapa Haka Addiction?

Do you eat, sleep and dream kapa haka? Then Maori Television wants to hear from you.

The exclusive broadcaster of the 2013 Te Matatini National Kapa Haka Festival is offering you the chance to win four reserve seated tickets (worth $500 each) as well as weekly spot prizes in the lead up to the event, which takes place February 20 – 24 in Rotorua.

All you have to do is send in a photo of your dedication to kapa haka, whether it be a photo of your one drawer dedicated to black performing undies, a photo of you and your haka idol, or a photo of your floor-to-roof kapa haka video library.

Be creative, be funny, and be yourself. If you’ve got a mete or whanau member who is of the ngati haka freak nature, make sure they enter or just send in a photo of them doing their thing. Please caption the photos, which will be uploaded to our Facebook page daily.

Prizes up for grabs include two double allocated seating ‘club 500’ passes to Te Matatini 2013. Spot prizes will be announced on Facebook every Friday leading up to the event.

So get snapping now and send your photos to tohu@maoritelevision.com.

Scoop Review Of Books: The Typewriter Factory

I finished reading Don’t Dream It’s Over not long after it came out last August. I even started writing a review, which took something of an ‘I’m sorry people, but it’s already over’ approach.

Howard Davis Review: Dick Frizzell At The Solander Gallery

One of the most influential and celebrated contemporary Pop artists working in New Zealand, Dick Frizzell is mostly known for his appropriation of kitsch Kiwiana icons, which he often incorporates into cartoon-like paintings and lithographs. Not content with adhering to one particular style, he likes to adopt consciously unfashionable styles of painting, in a manner reminiscent of Roy Lichtenstein. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books:
Looking Back

Writing a memoir that appeals to a broad readership is a difficult undertaking. As an experienced communicator, Lloyd Geering keeps the reader’s interest alive through ten chapters (or portholes) giving views of different aspects of his life in 20th-century New Zealand. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books: Purple (and Violet) Prose

This is the second recent conjoint publication by Reeve and Stapp; all to do with esoteric, arcane and obscure vocabulary – sesquipedalian, anyone – and so much more besides. Before I write further, I must stress that the book is an equal partnership between words and images and that one cannot thrive without the other. More>>
