The hosting club is expected to cover the costs of the medals needed for the national championship event for each weight category and age division. This cost should be covered via entry fee payments. Please note that OWNZ is looking to secure funding for our 2016 medal costs via funding trusts however this is not confirmed. The exceptions are for the following events: OWNZ will cover the costs of the National Senior & Junior championship medals and engravings for the national prize giving. OWNZ will cover the costs of the national secondary school medals but not the multi-location venue medals. Certificates Its always nice to be recognized our members that are competing in our sport and giving it a go. Participation certificates are a great way to congratulate them and show that we support their participation. Placing Certificates It is expected that podium winners also receive a 1 st, 2 nd or 3 rd place certificate with event partners and sponsors logos on this as well. Podium After each session there is to be a prize giving for our champions! A podium sets the scene so grab some boxes, set them at the different heights for 1 st, 2 nd & 3 rd and your good to go! Sponsors & Partners OWNZ Sponsors & Business Partners The OWNZ General Manager will advise you of the potential sponsors that may be involved with the event that you are proposing to host. For example, Industrial Athletic is our exclusive equipment supplier and at all of our national championship events we aim to promote their gear and brand. This then excludes the branding of any other equipment supplier at this event. OWNZ will work with this sponsor in providing approved equipment for each event but this is not definite. OWNZ also works closely with EBOS Sport who has provided prize packs for our podium winners at the last few national events; we will be looking to continue this relationship. Cobra Clothing have provided help with event apparel and weightlifting suits for event prizes. They also may look to have stalls at our national events throughout OWNZ is continuing to look for sponsors and business partners so there is potential for further obligations for this aspect of hosting a national event. Event sponsors OWNZ does not limit you to source your own event sponsors, if anything we would support and encourage it to build the events quality and professionalism. However, this does need to be approved by OWNZ before being finalized to clear any potential conflicts of interest. Drug Testing A small room with a hand-wash basin and toilet along with a small table and chair are required for the NZ Drug Free Sports recording. This must be separate from the competitors and spectators toilet area. Must be a lockable room that is private and secure for the Drug Free Sport NZ officers. Branding Designing a brand for the event and posters specifically for the event is required. Specific associated organizations and business logos need to be present on this as well as the hosting clubs logo. The OWNZ General Manager will advise you of what these are if you receive hosting rights. This event brand will be distributed to all OWNZ Clubs and the branding & posters will be used for social media and other media releases. Media Media exposure - Television/Newspaper Creating a media release that you can send out to local and national media contacts is a great opportunity to build your events exposure and promote your event to the local community and our nation. The GM can help you with this if needed. Photographer Everyone loves event photos! It is expected that you budget in the expense of an event photographer or ask your supporters if anyone has a photography friend to capture some action shots of the event. Video Footage for post event Consider having a video camera capturing each session and then editing the footage to create session promo footage. If you can afford it in the budget, think about hiring a videographer to help you! Live streaming Make a Bambuser account, make sure your laptop has a video camera on it, connect to the internet and then share the live streaming link on your social media pages It s that easy! Social Media Promoting your event, your club and our sport through social media will only benefit us. Think about Facebook and Instagram, this is a job in itself so make sure you have a volunteer that s good at hash-tagging! Specific Event Details & Obligations Nationals Championships Age categories: Senior & Junior Qualification Standards: Please see the OWNZ website Other Obligations: This also coincides with the OWNZ Annual General Meeting and the annual national prize giving. The General Manager will assist in organizing these with the hosting club. North & South Island Championships Age categories: This is an open event (No age categories) Qualification standards: To be confirmed, potential for there to be a mens standard put on for the north island champs if entry numbers are expected to exceed what the event is capable of.
