 Voyager Media Awards finalists announced this month

 Judging of the 2019 Voyager Media Awards is almost complete, with lists of finalists due to be released shortly. More than 70 judges from nine countries have reviewed nearly 2000 entries in 63 categories over the past five weeks. Some judges have struggled to appoint a clear winner because of the extremely high standard of the top entrants.

The names of finalists will be released in groups as results are confirmed.  

Winners will be announced at the 2019 Voyager Media Awards gala dinner on Friday, May 17, 2019, at Cordis, Auckland.

Tickets are now on sale for $175 at www.voyagermediaawards/tickets2019 

Staged by the Newspaper Publishers’ Association with Voyager Internet as premier sponsor, the awards showcase the very best of the country’s newspapers, magazines, news websites, and broadcasting.

Voyager CEO Seeby Woodhouse said finalists in this year’s Voyager Media Awards should feel very proud. “They’ve been selected against a huge number of high-calibre entries,” he said. “It really is a testimony to the standard of news we’re lucky to have access to here in New Zealand.”
