At the Canon Media Awards, the company collected prizes for Website of the Year (, Newspaper of the Year (The Weekend Herald), and Best Daily Newspaper over 30,000 circulation (The New Zealand Herald).

Daily video news show – NZ Herald Focus – received global recognition at the INMA Awards dinner in New York City on Tuesday night.

It was announced as the Best Launch of a Brand or Product to Create an Audience Segment, seeing close to one million video streams a week across all platforms.

Furthermore, NZME Ellerslie took home a Gold Medal for the NZ Herald 29 March edition in the publications category at the Print in Pride awards, one of only five gold medals awarded by the judges this year.

“It’s been a great week with these results showcasing the exceptional talent we have at NZME and confirms our story-telling is world class across every platform, said NZME CEO Michael Boggs.
