Judge's comments:

Kōrero’ demonstrates the power of collaboration across cultures and disciplines, delivering a compelling publication that will endure as an invaluable resource for iwi partner (Ngāi Te Rangi? / Ngāti Rangi?)

The project brought together poetry, art, photography, illustration, water-colours, writing and mapping to bring stories from past and present to life.

The story telling and clever use of ‘reveals’ in the publication added layers of depth to the publication, hinting at the tensions between past and present, between people, land, energy and the health or our environment.

The judges were extremely impressed with the project which demonstrates that if you go somewhere and listen deeply, you can unearth amazing stories and design amazing things.
