Z-nail Wins Award - Something to Celebrate!
46 MONTHS AGO
You may/may not be aware but last night, The Z-Nail Community were awarded with a very prestigious award - the Trust Power Western Bay Supreme Community Award recognising the huge voluntary effort that was put in by our whole community to make the film. It was a real honour to receive this award on the communities behalf.
(see article & photos at end of email)
Together as a community millions of dollars of resource were contributed to the making of a film, but more than that, what is worth celebrating is how we all rallied together, how people got to use their skills, talents and resources for a fun and invigorating community project. We celebrated our people, our environment and our creativity.
Winning the Supreme Award means in March this coming year we will travel down to Wellington and be given the opportunity to present this inspiring community story to 25 other winning community groups and organisations from all round NZ and vie for the title of Trustpower National Community Award Supreme Winner.
Without listing the over 400 people, businesses and organisations who became apart of the Z-Nail team I want to thank you all again for your contributions. - I believe the momentum and the celebration of community has really impacted and inspired people. Its been a journey of learning to focus on our communities strengths, talents, resources, assets and experience and build on these. It's been a journey of celebrating everyone and everything that we have and rallying these together. I believe people have been inspired to see what can achieved with next to no money, but with vision, passion and by pulling together.
And this is what I hope other communities can celebrate & be inspired by around NZ from this week. From this Thurs 28th Aug our film will be available in cinemas all around NZ: (Check out the extensive list at the end of this email…)
What we need now is your help to let people in all these areas know that they can go and watch it. This is going to a community story from start to finish. We have no huge marketing budget, no publicist, no national advertising campaign. For people to celebrate this incredible story of community for which we have just been recognised and rewarded, we need you to reach out and connect with your friends, your family, your colleagues and let them know that this film is coming and worth checking out. Most cinemas will only show it 2 or 3 times because its not a mainstream / marketed success. but it is being thoroughly enjoyed by those who watch it.
