Vodafone launches biggest VNZMA campaign ever

Vodafone today kicks off a campaign to get New Zealand moving for the Vodafone New Zealand Music Awards, to celebrate its ten year partnership of the event.

To get Kiwis pumped ahead of the biggest night in New Zealand music, Vodafone has launched the “Shake It” competition within the official VNZMA app.

Vodafone customers who Shake It will be in with a chance to win tickets to the VNZMA on 21 November. 500 double passes are up for grabs as well as VIP prize packs*.

Vodafone Consumer Director, Matt Williams says Vodafone is excited to mark its decade-long support of the Awards and Kiwi music.

“We wanted to give fans a taste of Kiwi music to shake their way to the Awards – so we’ve brought together top local R&B artist Aaradhna, and hip-hop producer P-Money to produce a new single, ‘Dapper Man’. Shake to the music, take a photo or video and send it to us via facebook or the VNZMA app to be in to win tickets to the Vodafone New Zealand Music Awards. It’s going to be interesting to see how people rise to the challenge!

“Dapper Man is free to download from the VNZMA app – giving Kiwis every reason to warm-up to this epic evening!”


Notes to editors:

• Three prize packs including a double VIP pass to the VNZMAs, flights and accommodation in Auckland (for those outside of the Auckland region)
