Whakaata Māori Proud To Be Nominated In NZTV Awards 2022

Whakaata Māori has been nominated for seventeen awards across eleven categories in this year’s prestigious New Zealand Television Awards.

Shane Taurima, Tāhuhu Rangapū Whakaata Māori says he’s proud of those that have come together, even in trying times, to be a part of a community focused on strengthening Māori storytelling in te reo Māori and English and ensure more Māori content is accessible to audiences.

“Whakaata Māori enables Māori to tell their stories, in te reo Māori and in an authentically Māori way. We contribute to the protection and promotion of te reo me ngā tikanga Māori alongside fellow kaupapa Māori content creators and being recognised for our efforts in revitalisation of te reo Māori is an honour.” says Mr Taurima.

“As a media platform, we do our best to create content that informs, educates, entertains viewers, and enriches New Zealand’s society, culture, and heritage; but it is our independent Māori producers and production houses that are the real winners here.”

The New Zealand Television Awards recognises excellence in television and honours the special skills and unique talents of the companies and individuals who create, produce, and perform in television programmes in New Zealand.

“Our team works hard to ensure te reo Māori content is delivered to everyone, everywhere. Our annual Ngā Tohu Matariki o Te Tau awards for example launched the journey towards the first formal acknowledgement of Matariki nationwide. In a first for Whakaata Māori, the awards were hosted outside of Auckland and broadcasted live from the Museum of New Zealand, Te Papa Tongarewa, in Wellington.” says Maramena Roderick, Tāhuhu Kaupapa Whakaata Māori.

Fan favourite Chatham Islanders has also been nominated in three categories; Best Factual Series, Best Director: Documentary/Factual and Best Camerawork: Documentary/Factual. The seven-part documentary series shares a rare insight into life for the 600-strong community living on New Zealand’s remotest island. which co-exists on the far-flung archipelago in the middle of the ocean.

“It is the combined efforts of producers, directors, independent production houses and the wider Māori media sector that make it possible to tell stories that deserve to be told, seen, and heard, by everyone, for everyone.” continues Miss Roderick.
