Cycle-Friendly Award Nominations

5 October 2004

Deadline Approaches For Cycle-Friendly Award Nominations

New Zealanders have until the end of the week to nominate their favourite cycling project or cycling champion for a CAN Cycle-Friendly Award.

The second national Cycle-Friendly Awards aim to celebrate initiatives that promote cycling and create a cycle-friendly environment at both national and local levels. The awards are administered by the Cycling Advocates Network (CAN) and proudly supported by SPARC.

There are four award categories: - Best Cycle Facility Project - Best Cycling Promotion - Cycle-Friendly Commitment by Business - Cycle-Friendly Commitment by Public Organisation

Nominations should be based on activities carried out some time during the 18-month period January 2003 - June 2004. The finalists will be invited to attend an awards ceremony in Wellington in November. All finalists will receive a certificate and a subscription to CAN, while the category winners will also receive the famous "bike-bell" trophy to adorn their cabinet.

Anyone can nominate somebody for a CAN Award - even if they're involved in the nominee organisation. Further details, a nomination form and information about last year's winnners are available on the CAN website or by ringing 03-331 7504.

CAN spokesperson Glen Koorey said that nominations were coming in steadily. Nominations are due by Friday 8th October.

Howard Davis: Dennis Villeneuve’s Dune - A Brief History

So many elements of Herbert’s novel have since become tropes of popular SciFi that Villeneuve’s film sometimes seems deceptively derivative. What makes all this nonsense essential viewing is his astonishing visual sensibility. More>>

Howard Davis: Jill Trevelyan's Rita Angus

Although Angus has become one of Aotearoa’s best-loved painters, the story of her life remained little known and poorly understood before Jill Trevelyan's acclaimed and revelatory biography, which has been republished by Te Papa press. More>>
