New Zealand’s media awards have a new sponsor and a new name:
The newly named Canon Media Awards include newspapers, magazines, websites blogs and photography with special categories awarding reporters, cartoonists and more. 2010 drew more than 6000 individual entries.
This year the winning entries in the blog category of the Qantas Media Awards attracted derision from certain parties and resulted in the Air New Zealand Best Blog Awards which were won by Cactus Kate.
No doubt if the Canon awards don’t meet the high standards of the blogosphere an appropriately named alternative will be found.
