World Class coverage for World Class Awards

Kiwi Expats Abroad

The brief

Wright Communications has been charged with publicising a number of high profile business award events in recent months and years, including the Kea (Kiwi Expats Abroad) World Class New Zealand Awards (2009, 2010 and 2012), which acknowledges successful New Zealanders on the world stage.

The Wright approach

Each year Wright Communications develops a four-month media relations campaign for Kea, from the initial call for entries through to the awards evening. We proactively target a variety of channels to maximise mainstream media coverage for each category winner, in addition to targeting niche vertical market publications such as science and advertising media.


The media campaign is always extremely successful with an average of more than half a million dollars worth of coverage generated in television, radio, online, magazines and newsletters. Individual stories run on the likes of TV One's Close Up, TV3's Firstline, TVNZ's Sunday, National Radio, Newstalk ZB, along with the New Zealand Herald, The Sunday Star Times, The Listener, the covers of NZ Management and Her magazine and more.
