Stuff.co.nz dominated the digital categories at this year’s Qantas Media Awards and it appears as though the advertisers have responded, with Fairfax Media claiming it has “significantly outperformed the market” in terms of its display advertising revenue, “almost doubling” the 38 percent increase achieved by the market since last quarter. But there are a few Fairfax figures that aren’t quite so forthcoming.

Of course, victory is always in the eye of the beholder (and, given the number of awards handed out and the size of the New Zealand market, there always seem to be plenty of beholders). But this year APN has nabbed the big ones: the Herald on Sunday was judged to be New Zealand’s Best Weekly and Best Overall newspaper for the second time in its five year history and The New Zealand Herald took the award as the country’s best daily newspaper.
The latest Nielsen Media Research data for readership numbers in the 12 months ending March 2010 has been released, and so has the obligatory combination of excessive adjective use, trumpet blowing, chest beating, questions about the research methodology, some oft-times fairly creative use of statistics and, if you look at the image above this paragraph, funny pictures of people with very white teeth who smile when they read.
The Outdoor Media Association of New Zealand (OMANZ) has released its first quarter gross media revenue results. And, while it has shrunk 1.7 percent on the same period last year, with $13.618m spent outside, OMANZ says it is a significant improvement on the 8.1 percent shrinkage the out-of-home sector experienced in 2009.
It wouldn’t be an ‘eggxaggeration’ to say that it’s Easter. And with Easter comes new pagan life, and with new pagan life comes news of various industry happenings about things like Cadbury, The Sweet Shop, Pead PR, Hunter, Top Gear magazine, MSN, APN, DB and Cannes.
APN Outdoor today announced the promotion of Kent Harrison to Sales Director. Harrison will lead the sales team of five and be responsible for the team’s introduction of new creative initiatives and production processes to clients and agencies.

Seven Media Group’s 2009 annual report reveals profit dropped to AU$12m from AU$142m last year, a fall of 91.2 per cent. This is due to its writedowns—reducing the book value of its media assets because they were overvalued compared to the market value. A company …
