Whānau Ora Comissioning Agency are excited to announce they have been awarded Silver and Bronze pins at the prestigious New Zealand Best Awards that was held in Auckland on Friday 6 October.

COO, Awerangi Tamihere, says it's an honour to have two campaigns named in finalist categories amongst such a fine line up of designers from across the country.

“Sharing our Whānau Ora story that both emboldens our whānau and at the same time allows them to see their future, is pivotal in the thinking that undeprins our campaigns. Our thanks must also go to Motion Sickness, our collab partner who constantly go above and beyond for us".
