Vodafone New Zealand Music Awards - the 'Tuis'

Award Information

The Vodafone New Zealand Music Awards are presented by the Recording Industry Association of New Zealand Inc (RIANZ).

New Zealand’s first awards for recorded music were co-founded by the NZBS and Reckitt and Colman, a soap powder manufacturer in 1965 when a panel was convened to determine which record would become ‘the Loxene Golden Disc’ (named after a shampoo sold by the sponsor).

The Loxene awards continued until 1972, when they were superseded by the Recording Arts Talent Awards, known by its acronym RATA.

In 1978 the NZFPI renamed itself the Recording Industry Association of New Zealand, and instituted the annual RIANZ Awards with judges from recording companies, radio, television and press, and one public-voting category.

Awards are made across of artistic and technical categories each year for CDs released in the previous year.

In 1999 the name of the awards was changed again, becoming the New Zealand Music Awards – affectionately known as ‘The Tuis’ after the trophy that is presented to winners.
