Winners of the 2021 Voyager Media Awards will be announced at a glitzy cocktail celebration at the Auckland Town Hall on Friday, May 28.

MC Toni Street will host the evening’s festivities, which recognise and celebrate the very best across print, photo, digital and broadcast journalism from New Zealand media organisations.

The format of the Awards is a little different this year. In response to feedback to provide more opportunities to connect and network, the event will not be a seated meal this year. Guests will instead enjoy substantial canapés and drinks served throughout the night with a range of seating available, giving the opportunity to mix, mingle and move around. Guests will be encouraged to be seated during the Awards formalities, which will commence at 7pm with a half-time break from approximately 8:10pm to 8:40pm. The announcements will finish at around 10pm.

This year’s Awards event sold out in record time, with 520 lucky ticket holders looking forward to getting together in person at the live event for the first time in two years.

Those who are not able to attend the Awards will be able to view an online live stream of the event, proudly brought to you by Media Chaplaincy New Zealand.
