Awards close – late entrants welcomed

As they say in the embalming business: you’re never too late. So it is with the TVNZ-NZ Marketing Awards. The official entry date has closed but there’s still time to get your entries in. With a stellar line up of judges and 23 fancy trophies to win, there’s every reason to get your story of marketing success in.

Convenor of judges Sue McCarty says: “It looks like once again we have a record number of entries but then again, it’s not over till it’s over. We are still searching for that great New Zealand marketing story so please, enter and tell us why you’ve done great work."

So enter—and nominate candidates for the Rookie Marketer and Marketer of the Year Awards—here
