The New Zealand Media Awards have celebrated excellence in New Zealand journalism since 1973. Originally known as the Qantas Press Awards, then the Canon Media Awards, Voyager Internet has been the premier sponsor since 2018. The awards are managed and promoted by the News Publishers' Association which champions the news media industry of New Zealand.

The Voyager Media Awards are held annually to encourage, showcase and acknowledge the best of New Zealand’s news media across all platforms.  They recognise the work of journalists, reporters, feature writers, columnists, cartoonists, reviewers, photographers and video journalists, culminating in a celebration of the winners in May.
