【R.I.P. | Kodak Gold Awards New Zealand】

June 01, 2016  •  Leave a Comment
About a week or so ago, Kodak New Zealand sadly announced on their Facebook page that The Kodak Gold Awards has come to the end.
 
"We regret to announce that the KODAK Professional Gold Awards will no longer run from 2016. These awards have recognised significant achievements and high skill levels of photography in New Zealand for several years. While we remain proud of this association we are no longer in a position to commit resources to this programme."  - Kodak Alaris
 
My first entry to Kodak Gold Awards was back in 2005 and I have received a silver award for a wedding portrait that I photographed while I was a videographer for a wedding. Since then I have entered the awards almost every year and I have been pretty lucky receiving awards every now and then. Being I am an Asian living in New Zealand, the awards brought me and my brother an interview from a local TV program "Asian Downunder" in 2010.
 
The awards have been run very well until probably to the point that Kodak filed bankruptcy in the United States in 2012. The business of Kodak New Zeland has changed hands a couple of time after the bankruptcy. It is sad to see the awards go but good on the present Kodak New Zealand owner making a good and brave move called for an end.

I am now sharing all my Kodak Awarded photographs to remember this one of the most recognised awards in New Zealand history.
