Congratulations to my former colleagues at nzherald.co.nz, which was named best news website.

The best sport site of the year was stuff.co.nz which also won for best news story.

Other online winners include spareroom.co.nz hosts Ana Samways and Steven Shaw, winning for best columnist-style site and also for best alternative/light entertainment site.

The best blog was Russell Brown’s Hard News, a highlight of his must-read Public Address network.

In the offline world, the Christchurch Press was named newspaper of the year and one of its staff, Peter Meecham, won the top photography award.

David Fisher of the Herald on Sunday was reporter of the year and named Qantas Fellow to Wolfson College, Cambridge.
