The Golden Foot Awards

The Golden Foot Awards
New Zealand’s National Walking Awards

Don’t forget
The closing date for the Golden Foot Awards is fast approaching!

These are new national walking awards organised by Living Streets Aotearoa. The closing date is 19th June, so make sure you get your nominations in quickly.

The awards will showcase walking innovations and facilitate the sharing of new ideas across the country. The awards will be presented in a high profile ceremony in Wellington Council chambers on 24th July.

There are numerous categories, so there is something for most projects. Perhaps there is a new facility in your area that has been great for walkers, or maybe a group doing some outstanding work. If you are not sure, if a project is eligible, please contact Janet Lawson on 04 385 8280.

The categories are:
• The New Zealand Best Practice walking Facility
• Top commitment to walking by a New Zealand organisation
• Consultancy Award for walking excellence in New Zealand
• New Zealand Accessibility Innovation Award
• Best New Zealand Walking Promotion
• Best New Zealand Small Walking Project
For information and entry forms visit All nominators will go into a prize draw to receive a free pass to the 2010 Walking Conference.

Living Streets Aotearoa is New Zealand’s national walking and pedestrian organisation, providing a positive voice for people on foot, and working to develop walking-friendly communities throughout New Zealand. Living Streets exists because walking is the invisible form of transport, often overlooked or not integrated into transport, public health or land use planning.
