Roger Award Nominations Close On October 31


Nominations For The 2003 Roger Award Close On October 31

Nominations close on October 31 for the annual Roger Award for the Worst Transnational Corporation Operating in Aotearoa/New Zealand.

Details for accessing the online nomination form, and where to send it, are at the end of this message.

Dunedin is to host the event to announce the winner(s). It will be held in the first few months of 2004 and details will be announced closer to the time.

This will be the first time that Dunedin has hosted the Roger Award event (the first three were held in Christchurch; one in Wellington, and the last two in Auckland). The organisers - Christchurch-based groups CAFCA and GATT Watchdog - are pleased that the only major city not to have thus far hosted the Roger will now do so. And Dunedin is even more appropriate because of the high profile role played by its Mayor, Sukhi Turner, who has been a judge several times, from the very beginning, and is again this year.

The judges are (in addition to Sukhi Turner, Mayor of Dunedin): Dr Ranginui Walker, Emeritus Professor at the University of Auckland; John Minto, veteran Auckland activist and National Chairperson of the Quality Public Education Coalition; Alister Barry, documentary maker, of Wellington; and Jill Hawkey, of Christchurch, National Director of Christian World Service. They will be given a shortlist of nominations from which to make their decision.

You can read all about the Roger Award and access the online nomination form at the CAFCA Website www.cafca.org.nz
