NZ On Air is pleased to release its Annual Report for the year ended 30 June 2012.
This year we invested in a stellar range of local content for New Zealanders to enjoy. We provided financial support to New Zealand stories and songs, retaining a space for our culture within the almost endless supply of international content.
As well as celebrating content supported through tried-and-true platforms, we have made a number of changes to the way we do things.
The new Digital Media Fund sees two new funding streams for online and mobile content – Kickstart and Ignite.
In music, we introduced MakingTracks, with a new focus on funding music for a wider range of audiences.
The first year of MakingTracks saw investment in a record 318 new music projects.
We have seen a remarkable range of programming featuring Māori perspectives and published a stock-take research paper on Pacific broadcast content, as we develop a Pacific broadcast strategy.
We’ve continued to support a wide mix of popular and off-peak programming for television and radio, with great new offerings sitting alongside well established favourites.
