The Parkour NZ Community Awards are our annual awards held at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) during the National Gathering each year.
It is our chance to say thank you to everyone doing the hard yards for the New Zealand parkour community around the country each year. In particular, we honour three people with a taonga that they become custodians of for the year. They can choose to display, wear, or otherwise keep it safe for the year before returning it and bestowing it on the next recepients. Over time, the taonga will have been worn by countless members of the New Zealand community from all over the country.
Please nominate someone residing in New Zealand from within your local, regional, or even the national community that you think deserves to have their contributions recognised. There are no specific award categories, so we encourage you to nominate any person and any parkour project big or small and give us as much detail as possible. Here are a few ideas:
- People doing great things for their local community (e.g. bringing the community together, fostering its growth, providing opportunities for new practitioners, etc.)
- People developing innovative or new projects that are making a positive difference to the community in some way.
- People creating entertaining and influential parkour media (photos, videos, or other artforms)
- People organising and running awesome events.
- People providing great coaching experiences for new or experienced practitioners.
- Anything else you can think of that’s worth celebrating!
There are only three awards each year, but feel free to submit multiple nominations.
