"Each year we are more and more impressed with the calibre of entries. It's great to see schools starting to compete - a primary school at that! It will certainly keep industry people on their toes," said Chris Lipscombe, Spokesperson for the Awards' Organising Committee.
"The Awards were established to recognise and encourage excellence in the interactive media industry. Judging by the variety and quality of entries we have received, we are confident that we are achieving this goal," said Mr Lipscombe.
The Categories cover Education, Marketing Communications, Art/Experimental, Recreation/Consumer, and for the first time Information/reference and E-Business sections.
The exhibition is being held at (e) Vision on the corner of Wakefield and Blair Streets in Wellington until Saturday 13th November.
"Thursday is judging day. It will involve a whole day of demonstrations by finalists to judging panels and will culminate in a cocktail evening and awards presentation ceremony that evening," said Mr Lipscombe.
The exhibition is free, and tickets to the Awards night can be purchased from Ally Savill on 021 605 610.
