Who will you nominate for the WIFT Awards

Posted Tuesday 03 Oct 2017


Bettina Hollings won the Queenstown Camera Company Entrepreneurship Award in 2016: who wins it in 2018 is down to you, dear members, so it's time to get thinking and nominate a deserving woman!!

The Queenstown Camera Company is now generously sponsoring the Craft Award, leaving space for their friends Imagezone to kindly come in and take over the Entrepreneurship Award. We thank Imagezone for joining the WIFT Awards family.

Previous winners of the Entrepreneurship Award also include Rhonda Kite (2008), Janine Morrell-Gunn (2009), Tania Rodger (2010), and Francis Valintine (2014).

This award recognises exceptional business achievement and is given to a woman who has demonstrated business acumen and entrepreneurial vision in establishing a sustainable financial enterprise, contributing to the future health and viability of the New Zealand film and television industry.

In judging, particular weighting will be given to evidence of a sound business approach, international presence and activity, and significant turnover with leveraged investment in product that delivers sustainability.

We want you to nominate women you know who meet this criteria - we can think of several who have not yet been recognised!
