On Friday night, something unexpected happened – the judges for the Canon Media Awards named us Website of the Year.
We put our hearts and souls into telling stories for New Zealand’s digital generation. There’s a staff of just four people who are dedicated to making this happen week in, week out – plus an ever-evolving crew of contributors.
However you measure it, we’re a small team.
But we’re 100 percent committed to what we do: reporting original stories that educate, enlighten and entertain. Stories that matter.
And while the team is small, the talent is big.
Tess McClure won Junior Feature Writer of the Year for a portfolio of work that included this great piece, and work from her previous position at Fairfax. She’s an incredibly versatile journalist, who has been working on video and podcast projects as well as writing longform.
There are other people who are just as vital.
Rebecca Kamm lights up our concept of what’s possible with her creativity and her beautifully crafted writing.
Hussein Moses is turning the site into a go-to for the freshest music content in New Zealand.
And what we do, we do for our audience.
