“The idea of an event recognizing the excellence in writing that is originated by writers and the Guild is fantastic, and has a lot of support as its different from a big awards event that covers a huge diversity of television and film. It is really special to have an Awards about the craft of writing, I was so rapt when the Guild created it. It’s a great event where writers recognize writers. “
Michael Bennett, 2011 SWANZ Winner for Best Feature Film Script
“We believe that our stories should be shared and should be celebrated. These awards and the evening event do just that for the best in the country.” Steven Gannaway, Executive Director, NZWG.
In November 2010, the NZ Writers Guild (NZWG) launched the inaugural awards evening for scriptwriters, the SWANZ. This initiative was created to recognize and acknowledge the talented storytellers behind the screens and stages of New Zealand.
