With Scoop's audience being a discerning and rather affluent group of people the Scoop team have long thought that our website would be an ideal place to market quality New Zealand artist's prints.

In 2014 I had the wonderful experience of getting to know a remarkable artist whose work I decided I would love to conduct a sales experiment with. Though circumstances intervened and our 2014 attempts at marketing William Carden-Horton's remarkable drawings came to nought - William very kindly agreed to assist with our PledgeMe campaign to launch the Scoop Foundation for Public Interest Journalism.

William Carden-Horton (Click to view his Instagram page) has been described as a visual journalist who "holds his pen loosely" recording New Zealand's awesome landscape.

His distinctive line drawn images capture the beauty of New Zealand landscape themes wonderfully and contain a sense of movement and freshness which is instantly recognizable by those familiar with our mountains, rivers and native fauna..

William has very kindly offered to donate the use of several of his most popular images to the cause of the launch of the Scoop Foundation for Public Interest Journalism.

William was Icebreaker's seasonal-artist-in-nature in 2014 and his work features on some of the latest Icebreaker's iconic and quite marvelous clothing range. His work has also featured on a number of poetry books including the Makaro Press - Hoopla series.

The Scoop Foundation will certify each print as a bona-fide Scoop Foundation founding certificate with its common seal and the signatures of the trustees.

On the reverse of each T-Shirts we plan to print the Scoop Koru logo as displayed above.

These will in short be exclusive and almost unique works of art.

Purchasers of these rewards will be contacted by Scoop following the PledgeMe campaign to choose which images they would like to have printed on their exclusive art-t-shirts or certificates. Mockups of the images will be available as rewards follow. So far around 20 pledgers to the scoop campaign have already chosen these rewards.

Dunne Speaks: Can ACT's Dream Run Continue?

By most reckonings the ACT Party has had a very successful political year. Not only has its expanded Parliamentary team settled in well to its work, without controversy or scandal, but its leader has gained in community respect, and the party’s support, at least according to the public opinion polls, has increased sharply...

Binoy Kampmark: Foreseeable Risk: Omicron Makes Its Viral Debut
It has been written about more times than any care to remember. Pliny the Elder, that old cheek, told us that Africa always tended to bring forth something new: Semper aliquid novi Africam adferre. The suggestion was directed to hybrid animals, but in the weird pandemic wonderland that is COVID-19, all continents now find themselves bringing forth their types, making their contributions. It just so happens that it’s southern Africa’s turn... More>>

Gasbagging In Glasgow: COP26 And Phasing Down Coal

Words can provide sharp traps, fettering language and caging definitions. They can also speak to freedom of action and permissiveness. At COP26, that permissiveness was all the more present in the haggling ahead of what would become the Glasgow Climate Pact... More>>

Globetrotter: Why Julian Assange’s Inhumane Prosecution Imperils Justice For Us All

When I first saw Julian Assange in Belmarsh prison, in 2019, shortly after he had been dragged from his refuge in the Ecuadorean embassy, he said, “I think I am losing my mind.”
He was gaunt and emaciated, his eyes hollow and the thinness of his arms was emphasized by a yellow identifying cloth tied around his left arm... More>>

Dunne Speaks: Labour's High Water Mark
If I were still a member of the Labour Party I would be feeling a little concerned after this week’s Colmar Brunton public opinion poll. Not because the poll suggested Labour is going to lose office any time soon – it did not – nor because it showed other parties doing better – they are not... More>>
