About New Zealand Literary Prizes

Before 1996, there were two major New Zealand literary prizes.
They merged in 1996 to form the Montana New Zealand Book awards.

The New Zealand Book Awards ran from 1976 to 1995.

The other major award from 1968-1993 was the Goodman Fielder Wattie Book Awards (when the Wattie's company merged with Goodman Fielder, the Wattie book awards became the Goodman Fielder Wattie Book awards).

Montana took over sponsorship in 1994 and the awards became the Montana Book Awards (1994-1995).

In 1996, the Montana Book Awards merged with the New Zealand Book Awards to become the Montana New Zealand Book Awards.
