CAANZ launches call for entries for the 2013 'Renaissance' Media Awards - deadline 11 Feb

CAANZ.jpgCAANZ has this week released the Call for Entries for the 2013 Media Awards programme. In a change to the order of the past few years, the Media Awards are the first award programme off the rank and will be followed by AXIS a month later. The Media Awards show will be held at the Langham on Thursday 11th April 2013.
The creative theme for 2013, developed by JWT, is the Media Renaissance, celebrating a golden age of media discoveries and channel exploration. The Renaissance was a time of discovery, exploration and progress for mankind; a perfect metaphor for charting the new territories that today's media faces.

Fulfilling the role of convener of judges is Lew Bentley, last seen in the same role at the 2012 Effie Awards. Paul Head, CAANZ CEO made the appointment on the back of an incredible amount of positive feedback about the role Lew played as Effie Awards convener. His rigorous judging style ensured a fair and even debate before identifying the winners who were truly deserving of the accolade.

Says Head: "It made good sense to bring Lew and his robust moderating style to the Media Awards."
Following an overwhelming response to the application/nomination process introduced in 2012 for preliminary judges, CAANZ will again use this process in 2013 to find the cream of the crop from which to pick a great panel of judges for the preliminary judging round. Preliminary judging sessions will again be held in both Auckland and Wellington.
Continuing to explore ways in which the CAANZ Media Awards remain the pre-eminent media industry awards, CAANZ are re-introducing the additional level of executive judging in 2013. The executive judging panel will comprise the team leaders from the category round judging who will review all metal winners to ensure consistency of awards across categories. Winning gold entries will then be forwarded to the panel of international judges to award Best in Show.
