You've only got one week left to tell your marketing story and get your entry in for the 2012 TVNZ-NZ Marketing Awards. Entries close 5pm Friday 18 May 2012 and hopefully you've noticed that there are eight new categories to enter. Time waits for no man, of course, but if you're unable to submit your entry on time for whatever reason (laziness, inebriation, unreliable minions etc), all is not lost. You can extend the deadline by a week by applying for an extension here and forking over $50.

Invercargill is well known for its wide 'Parisian' boulevards, infamous mayor, the world’s Southern-most McDonalds (we think), an abundance of oysters and cheese rolls, as well as the highest incidence of R-rolling in the country. However, the city hasn't ever established a lasting brand identity, and locals decided the time had come to figure out what the town stood for. Designer Tim Christie talks us through the Invercargill brand’s new “stoic” look and feel.
