Hamilton reader wins Scoop Super Summer Kiwi Music Prize

As a dedicated follower of New Zealand music, Bren George of Hamilton was overjoyed to scoop up our Summer Kiwi Music prize of tickets to the Music At Matua festival on 8 February.

Her total prize for winning our first Scoop competition for the year also included a double pass to the festival, a package of Music CD's and music merchandise.

Entering the draw for the Scoop competition was part and parcel of Bren's philosophy for life of "giving everything a go" and "living life to the full" - from festival going to white river rafting on the Tongariro with Rafting New Zealand.

Speaking with Scoop, Bren gave Ginny Blackmore and Grammy-winning Lorde as her personal NZ music faves.

Bren also had some praise for Scoop: "It's the one site that pops up all the time when I'm looking for something on the internet or just catching up with news and events from all different sources". Thanks Bren!

Scoop begins its next competition - in association with the Beyond D Digital Marketing Group - soon.
