Maori Television triumphs at Promax & BDA ANZ 2004

MUMBAI: The six month old, New Zealand based broadcaster Maori Television made its mark within the global television scenario by bagging a gold and silver award at the Promax & BDA ANZ 2004 awards, held at Sydney’s Art Gallery NSW on Saturday, 18 September.



With serious competition from Asia, Australia and New Zealand; Maori Television managed to pick up a gold in the best music promo category for an on-air promotion for the live music programme coast and a silver in the best promo not using programme footage category for the on-air promotion for the NZ Maori vs US / Churchill Cup rugby tournament that was broadcast live in June.



Maori All Black Rico Gear braved the cold, winter evening and appeared in traditional Maori costume before donning his usual training gear. The special haka chant adopted by the NZ Maori team was recorded as an audio track and Maori Television’s sports commentator, Julian Wilcox, voiced the promo,” said Maori Television promotions manager Sheila Byrne according to agency reports.



With this win, Maori Television has become the only New Zealand broadcaster to return from the event with a gold award. Also, this coveted win has put Maori Television on the map with other international television channels within six months of being on air.
