Finalists will receive further profile in two special awards publications. The Press will publish a broadsheet supplement in the newspaper which is a stand-alone insert which includes advertisements and editorial exclusively about the Awards, finalists, and sponsors. Each finalist will be profiled in an editorial piece written by The Press for this publication. The broadsheet supplement is also available as an online feature on The Press website (view the 2014 supplement online here).

The Press will also publish a booklet to profile finalists and sponsors which will be distributed to every attendee at the awards ceremony. Finalists will receive a number of copies of this high quality booklet for their own use following the awards ceremony. Finalists also receive the opportunity to purchase an advertising package at a special rate for both the broadsheet supplement and booklet.

Each finalist has a video presentation of their organisation shown at the awards ceremony. The video will be filmed and edited by our audio visual team. There is no cost involved for finalists in the production of this clip and it is yours for future use following the Awards ceremony. This is a great opportunity to promote your business or charity. The videos below are from 2014 The Press Champion Canterbury Supreme Winners Haka Tours (Small enterprise winner) and Synlait Milk (Large enterprise winner).

Haka Tours and Synlait Milk were the winners of The Press Champion Canterbury Supreme Awards in 2014.

Wow, I can't believe we won our category and the overall small business prize!!! Needless to say we celebrated until late! What an awesome night. We feel the process works really well from application right through to the awards. Plus, you always send updates so we can kept in the loop which is great. Thanks for an amazing night and I will encourage my friends who have Canterbury based businesses to enter as I think they are missing out not entering!
