Celebrating 30 Years Of Exceptional Marketing

Winners for the 2021 TVNZ-NZ Marketing Awards announced via Virtual Awards Show.

On Thursday afternoon, NZ Marketing magazine and the Marketing Association presented awards in 28 categories across sector, excellence and individual divisions at the 2021 TVNZ-NZ Marketing Awards.

For the first time in its 30-year history the Awards were given out via a Virtual Awards Show, hosted by the lovely Hilary Barry, and streamed on NZ Marketing magazine’s website, with live blogging on the Marketing Association’s social channels.

Celebrating its pearl anniversary, organisers called upon Kiwi marketers to put their best work forward and submit marketing pearlers worthy of the occasion. And the winners announced today certainly reflect the exceptional work and efforts we’ve come to expect from the Awards over the years.

Taking top honours with the Supreme Award, as well as Not-for-Profit Sector Award, was the National Collective of Independent Women’s Refuges Inc for its Women’s Refuge: Safe Nights initiative. The judges said of the win: “This entry was a clear standout because of the end-to-end marketing strategy from insights to outcomes and their integrated and innovative market approach. They reframed the way the problem was presented into a positive relatable solution. A compelling entry in a tough category in an especially tough year.”

The two other big Awards went to Shane Evans of ASB and Kathlynn Lee of bp Oil New Zealand who took out the titles of Marketer of the Year and Young Marketer of the Year respectively.

The Awards Show also recognised the creative genius of Mike Hutcheson who was inducted into the Marketing Hall of Fame for his career-long service to the marketing industry by way of his advertising and educational work, inspiring marketers old and young.

“It’s a testament to the industry that these Awards are now in their 30th year. An outstanding achievement. When they started back in 1991 no one could have predicted that this year we’d be holding celebrations online and socially-distanced. But a global pandemic didn’t stop Aotearoa New Zealand marketers from producing world class work. So, an extra big congratulations to all our finalists and winners this year,” said David Nothling-Demmer, Editor of NZ Marketing.

The exclusive profiles and case studies are published in the December issue of NZ Marketing magazine, and available via discounted subscription, here.

“It’s with tremendous pride that our teams have put this show together for you. Today, we celebrate the hard work of New Zealand marketers, their clever marketing strategies, creative excellence, and of course impressive commercial results. I’d also like to acknowledge the incredible panel of leading marketing professionals and business leaders who have brought their vast knowledge and experience to the judging process which truly underpins the integrity of these Awards,” said John Miles, Chief Executive, Marketing

Association.

This year the panel of Judges was again led by Michael Friedberg, Director/vCMO at MJF Consulting.

Incredible in their support of marketing in New Zealand, and long-time Premier Sponsor of the Awards, TVNZ should be recognised for helping make this event a success.

The 2021 TVNZ-NZ Marketing Awards were also supported by Category Sponsors oOh!media, NZME, The Radio Bureau, ThinkTV, One Picture, ReachMedia, ICG Media and The Pond.
