New Awards Category for Māori Language Programme
at the 2018 NZ Television Awards

The NZ Television Awards is proud to announce a brand new award category for Māori content in 2018.

The Best Reo Māori Programme category will honour television programmes of any genre that are primarily aimed at a Māori speaking audience and which feature a majority of Māori language dialogue.

The new award joins the Best Māori Programme award which is open to programmes made for a broad audience that make a conscious effort to reveal something of the past, present or future Māori world. The Hui, produced by Great Southern Television and airing on Three, won the category in 2017.

Both awards categories are sponsored by Te Māngai Pāho.

Larry Parr, Chief Executive of Te Mangai Paho says "Te Māngai Pāho is pleased to once again support the New Zealand Television Awards. We are particularly pleased that the organising committee has seen fit to differentiate between best Māori programme and best Māori language programme. Establishing the award for the Best Reo Māori Programme accords the language the status it deserves."

Entries for the 2018 NZ Television Awards open on July 2.

Rāpare 28 Pipiri 2018


E hīkaka ana ngā Tohu Pouaka Whakaata i tā rātou whakarewa i tētahi tohu hou mō ngā kaupapa Māori i tēnei tau 2018.

Ko te wāhanga e kīia nei ko 'Te Hōtaka Reo Māori Angitu' e whakamānawa ana i tētahi momo whakaaturanga e aronui ana ki te hunga mātakitaki he reo Māori tō rātou, ā, mō te nuinga o ngā hōtaka he reo Māori tonu, ka rangona.

Ka noho tēnei wāhanga ki te taha o te tohu 'Hōtaka Māori Angitu' e wātea ana ki ngā hōtaka kua waihangatia mā te hunga mātakitaki whānui, engari kē ia he ngana ki te whakaatu i ētahi āhuatanga Māori ō mua, ō nāianei me āpōpō anō hoki. I whakawhiwhia tēnei hōnore ki The Hui i te tau 2017.

Hei tā Larry Parr, o Te Māngai Pāho, “Waingōhia ana mātou ki te tautoko i Te Hui Tuku Taonga Pouaka Whakaata o Aotearoa me te whakatau kua puta i te kōmiti whakahaere, kia noho motuhake te tohu hōtaka reo Māori i te tohu hōtaka Māori. Mā te whakatū i tēnei tohu e mana ai tō tātou reo Māori.”

Hei te rā tuarua o Hūrae tūwhera ai ngā tono mō Ngā Tohu Pouaka Whakaata o Aotearoa.

Pēhia ki konei mō te roanga atu o ngā whakamahuki.
