MasterChef Australia Mystery Box Challenge

To celebrate a brand-new season of the well-loved MasterChef Australia we created a Mystery Box Challenge for our agencies! We provided a MasterChef Mystery Box which included pre-made cakes with an assortment of delicious toppings, icing and decorations. The brief was simple yet broad – utilise as few or as many of the ingredients you like to create a MasterChef, masterpiece using only the ingredients in the box.

The entries were outstanding, we had trouble (maybe a fight or two) picking our winners…

  • A HUGE congratulations to the below winners:
    1st place goes to team VMLY&R Wellington winning a Kitchen Aid Mini Mixer. It was on brand featuring the MasterChef, TVNZ and TVNZ 2 logos and looked so delicious we just wanted to put our faces in it.
  • 2nd place goes to MBM Wellington winning a Mini Webber BBQ… Very appropriate given they created a steak cake with mashed potato and gravy! We loved the creativity and a little bit of crazy.
  • 3rd place goes to the team at Motion Sickness winning the Food Processor. The styling of this cake was outstanding. Flawless chocolate shards and a little bit different with the Matariki theme.

1st place: VMLY&R Wellington - Created by Freya

2nd place: MBM Wellington - Created by Rox, Charlotte & Loren

3rd place: Motion Sickness - Created by Josh

Merry Christmas from TVNZ - 2019

Tis the season for relaxation, a break from the routine, time with friends and family and hopefully some laughs.  We thought we would kick off the giggles with some of our favourite calls into TVNZ from our treasured viewers. 

Hope you enjoy our Phone Log LOL’s as much as we enjoy receiving them.

Have a very merry Christmas, a safe holiday and a prosperous 2020 from all of us at TVNZ.

Shortland Street Open Day - 2019 

Seven thousand fans received a tour through the Shortland Street set during the first ever open day last Saturday. It proved to be very popular, with queues running several kilometres. Fans were determined to get a tour of the set and meet their favourite stars, such as TK, Harper Whitley, Esther Samuels and Chris Warner. Fans travelled from all over the country, coming from as far as Wellington, Christchurch and Invercargill, with some die hard fans coming all the way from Australia!
