An international panel of judges has recognised RNZ’s multimedia excellence in audio, video, and presentation categories.

RNZ News is shortlisted for its outstanding coverage of the Kaikoura earthquake in the continuing news category, Checkpoint presenter, John Campbell, is one of three finalists for Presenter of the Year, and in a first for RNZ, the popular podcast series The 9th Floor gets recognition in the video section competing against long established providers of high quality video content.
