This is the first time the competition has been held and the creativity and individual take on three of the E Tū Whānau values has been outstanding says judge Kura Te Waru-Rewiri. “It has been wonderful and a privilege to view these works. There is definite talent in all of the entrants and they are all to be commended for entering the competition.”

Winning entries will be used to create posters and other resources to help share the E Tū Whānau kaupapa, a Māori initiative to create positive change. The competition was run in partnership with Māori Radio and the Māori Media Network and all entries can be viewed in the poster competition gallery https://woobox.com/7fui7x on the E Tū Whānau Facebook page.
