Voyager Media Awards entry website opens soon

Thanks to our naming sponsor Voyager Internet, and our family of generous supporting sponsors, the 46th Voyager Media Awards are in good form for 2019.

The media awards entry website will go live from midday on Friday, December 14, 2018 and close at 11pm on Wednesday February 13, 2019.  Past and new entrants are encouraged to start thinking about their entries now rather than leave it until the last minute. Entries will benefit from some thought and planning.

Winners will be announced at the 2019 Voyager Media Awards gala dinner on Friday, May 17, 2019, at Cordis, Auckland. To see photographs from the 2018 awards, and the judges’ comments for the winning entries, go to  

Details of new and existing categories for the 2019 awards will be released next week.

Staged by the Newspaper Publishers’ Association with Voyager Internet as premier sponsor, the awards attract more than 2000 entries from both print and broadcast journalists, photographers, videographers, designers, artists, columnists and cartoonists. The awards showcase the very best of the country’s newspapers, magazines, news websites, and broadcasting.

Awards director Jane Phare said viewing the outstanding work submitted each year was the most rewarding part of running the awards. “I’m always impressed by the talent that is pushed to the forefront as a result of these awards. Some of the work being done by young newcomers to the industry is particularly encouraging to see.”     

Voyager CEO Seeby Woodhouse said Voyager was delighted to once again support the awards. “I’d like to take this opportunity to wish everyone good luck with their submissions. I can imagine the calibre of entries will once again be sky high, and no doubt the judges will have a tough task on their hands,” he said. “ I look forward to congratulating those nominated at next year’s awards ceremony, and celebrating the high standard of journalism which will be showcased.”
