.................................................................................................

The Wellingtonian of the Year Awards are a Dominion Post project and were started in 1989 to celebrate achievements and contributions across all sectors of the greater Wellington community, awarding those who make the Wellington region the exciting and vibrant place it is.

Now endearingly known as The Wellys, the awards night celebrates these people across nine categories, with one overall Welly Recipient recognised as the supreme winner - The (year) Wellingtonian of the Year.

There have been some truly outstanding recipients over the years, starting with Gloria Grattan in 1989 for her work as a launch fundraiser for Mary Potter Hospice. 

Other winners include lawyer Steph Dyhrberg, Sir Richard Taylor, Dane Coles, Steven Adams, Sir Des Britten, Sir Roy McKenzie, Dame Kate Harcourt, Sir Peter Jackson, Sir Jon Trimmer, Steve Logan & Al Brown and Jemaine Clement & Bret McKenzie of Flight of the Conchords fame.

 

There are 9 Wellys Categories:

  Arts     Business     Community Service      Education      Environment     

  Public Service     Science & Technology    Sport     Youth

 

Over the 2 month campaign, Nominations are sought from the public across these 9 Categories.

The Finalists are announced and then profiled for a month in The Dominion Post.

This all culminates in the Wellingtonian of the Year Awards attended by many local luminaries and past Recipients.
