Pikihuia Awards for Māori Writers


Have you got a story to tell? Every two years The Pikihuia Awards for Māori Writers gives budding writers, published authors and talented students the opportunity to tell their stories. With the aim of promoting Māori viewpoints and language, Māori writers of short stories, novels and film scripts – in English and Māori – have the chance to share their stories with the world, win cash prizes and get published! The Pikihuia Awards are about telling our stories, with our voices; so what are you waiting for?
