New Zealand Post has won the 2008 National Business Review Awards for Sponsorship of the Arts

New Zealand Post has won the 2008 National Business Review Awards for Sponsorship of the Arts. NZ Prime Minster, Rt. Hon. Helen Clark, presented the Overall Winner prize at a black tie gala last night in the Auckland Town Hall.

The gala included performances by the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra, the Royal New Zealand Ballet, Tim Beveridge and his Neophonic Jazz Orchestra and the NBR New Zealand Opera’s ‘Emerging Artists’.

New Zealand Post was awarded the overall prize for its sponsorship of the New Zealand Post Book Awards for Children and Young Adults. The awards recognise writers and illustrators of children’s and young adults’ books.

New Zealand Post has supported the awards for twelve years in association with Booksellers New Zealand. The judges said: “The sponsorship continues to successfully promote literacy, by encouraging children to read and write. At the same time, it has made greater use of New Zealand Post channels and services, and has involved numerous New Zealand Post personnel at a grassroots community level.”

There is also a neat Flickr page by Bullet PR. They have been managing this event for NBR for the last decade. If you do head out there, make sure it is on Firefox and use the latest PicLens plugin. It is lovely.

NBR
By the by, while looking through this story, I went to the NBR site. Haven't been there for an age. It is looking very crisp! I'll be back, especially for the local arts and technology stories. Stephen Ballantyne does the latter.

John Daly Peoples , aka JDP, is their main Arts correspondent. Try this recent story on the NZ contemporary art market courtesy of reports from the auction houses, Art & Object, and Webb's.

For those with that kind of curiosity, be also advised that JDP is also the man who curates and manages the art in the Air New Zealand metropolitan Koru Lounges.

It's great to having you posting more often!

I always find the intersection of the art and business worlds so interesting - I think that art should have a monetary value but are always interested and sometimes bewildered at how the price is decided upon.

That said, I see my investment in a Frizzell can of tuna was not in vain ...
