#NZWF16 will deliver a day of presentations, panels and screenings of all awards finalists, with the awards presentation running on the evening of 19 November. The finalists for the festival’s awards will be announced on 17 October.

NZWF co-creator and organiser Keith Barclay said, “We’re excited to be returning to Media Design School for our second edition and will this year offer two programme streams. We received almost 100 entries for the awards, which is a great testament to the huge amount of talent and energy being poured into online content by New Zealand creators.”
Programme details and speakers will be announced over the coming weeks, with earlybird tickets to the events on sale from this Friday 7 October.
