NZ Art Guild A Finalist In The David Awards 2009: Heroes In Small Business

The NZ Art Guild is excited about being named as a finalist in The David Awards 2009: Heroes In Small Business. The David Awards recognise the unsung heroes in home and small businesses throughout New Zealand, whose tenacity, courage and ingenuity place them firmly at the forefront of entrepreneurship in this country.

The NZ Art Guild is one of three finalists in the "Most Community Minded Business" category which recognises a business which gives back to its community, e.g. local, regional or industry sector, in ways, shapes or forms which benefit the community significantly.
Guild Manager, Sophia Elise says "We couldn't think of a better category to be a finalist in. We are proud to support not only visual artists but the wider NZ community and charities like Mental Health Foundation and the Leukaemia and Blood Foundation."

The organizer of the Awards, Heather Douglas, says, “The judges felt there was a strong and varied field of entrants this year. These finalists are inspiring, courageous business people with a passion for what they do and the determination to make it work. Some have overcome considerable adversity in order to reach the success they now enjoy.”

Category winners and a Supreme Award will be announced during a live webcast on The David Awards web site from 10.30 a.m. on the 7th of October. A podcast of the event will be available for download for an extended period after the actual ceremony.
