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
