Finalists announced

The finalists for the 2014 Attitude Awards have now been announced and once again include an exceptional lineup of Kiwis.

This year’s Awards – the spectacular annual Gala Event held at Auckland’s Viaduct Events Centre on December 3– is New Zealand’s only national televised celebration of Kiwis living with disabilities.

The Gala dinner is held each year on Disability Day where awards are presented across seven categories to people whose extraordinary talents have often failed to be recognised by New Zealand society.

These include change makers to artists, sportsmen and women to employers, youth and a new category of juniors.

First held in 2008, the Attitude Awards are the only national awards that celebrate achievement in the disability sector across all disabilities. The Trust aims to draw media attention to the 17% of New Zealand’s population who live with disability.

Westpac has had a strong relationship with the Attitude Trust since 2009 and sponsors the Courage in Sport Award at the Attitude Awards.

Watch this week's episode of Attitude featuring the 2014 Awards finalists on Sunday at 8:30am TV ONE.

This will also be online at attitudelive.com shortly after.
