The Wellingtonian of the Year Awards, now endearingly known as The Wellys, are a celebration of the many great individuals across all sectors of the community. These people make the greater Wellington region an exciting and vibrant place in which to live and work.
There have been some truly outstanding recipients over the years, starting with Gloria Gratan in 1989 for her work as a launch fundraiser for Mary Potter Hospice. Other winners include Sir Roy McKenzie, Dame Kate Harcourt, Peter Jackson, Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie of Flight of the Conchords fame and Sir Jon Trimmer.
Get a group of friends together and come along to this memorable and special awards night for an outstanding evening of fine dining, fine wine & beer and entertainment.
Raise a glass to the 35 outstanding finalists who help make Wellington the coolest little capital in the world, as we announce the nine category winners, culminating in the announcement of the 2012 Wellingtonian of the Year.
