Now is your chance to be a part of history!

Earn The Fern - New Zealand Olympic Committee

The Queen’s Baton Relay is a Commonwealth Games tradition that
celebrates diversity, inspires community pride and excites people in
the lead up to the Games – and it’s coming our way!

The baton is travelling throughout the Commonwealth on its journey to
the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games. Inside the baton, a message from Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is secured. The relay calls the world’s best athletes from around the Commonwealth to come together in peaceful and friendly competition and the Queen’s message will be read out at the opening ceremony in April next year.

Now is your chance to be a part of history!

Outstanding individuals from around New Zealand will have the opportunity to carry the baton as it travels across the country this December.

Those selected will earn the right to be a baton bearer in recognition of their outstanding commitment and contribution to their local community.

Nominations can be made online now at
www.commonwealthgames.org.nz/qbr

Howard Davis: Controlling the High Ground

Stephen Johnson's raw and angry film not only poses important questions with scrupulous authenticity, but also provides a timely reminder of the genocidal consequences of casual bigotry and xenophobia. More>>

Howard Davis: Dryzabone - Robert Conolly's The Dry

After the terrible devastation caused by last year’s bushfires, which prompted hundreds of Australians to shelter in the ocean to escape incineration and destroyed uncountable amounts of wildlife, The Dry has been released during a totally different kind of dry spell. More>>
