NZ ceremony honoured in UK

The dedication ceremony for the New Zealand Memorial at London’s Hyde Park has won a major British award. The event won the International Visual Communication Association (IVCA) award for projects that inform and educate their audiences. Designed by architect John Hardwick-Smith and sculptor Paul Dibble, the memorial reflects the enduring bonds between NZ and Britain. Its dedication ceremony was on 11 November 2006. “The memorial speaks strongly of New Zealand as a nation and of our special relationship with the UK,” said Brodie Stubbs of NZ’s Ministry for Culture and Heritage. “The dedication ceremony was an equally powerful and moving expression of our identity.”
