Shepherdess wins at Electra Business Awards

We are super proud to announce that Shepherdess Magazine took out a shiny gong at the Electra Business and Innovation Awards.

Lemonface Design are honoured to be the creative force behind this outstanding publication. Shepherdess connects and empowers inspiring women across rural New Zealand by offering a place to share stories. For them to scoop the ‘Hospitality, Entertainment and Tourism Award’ is no mean feat and well-deserved recognition for the whole team. It shows what can be achieved when you have a bunch of people that believe in the same vision all working together. To be recognised in 2020 in a year like no other, is extra special. This award shows a determination to laugh in the face of challenging circumstances, to overcome obstacles and it shows our passion to succeed. To win an award that supports, promotes and recognises local business across Kāpiti & Horowhenua is wonderful! 

The Judges Commented

“The adage: ‘find a job you love, and you’ll never work a day in your life’ fits the Shepherdess. Early in its journey, the Shepherdess’ response showed a very clear passion, an admirable purpose, and has demonstrated solid follow through. Its use of specific social media to create interest and reinforce messages is impressive. The Shepherdess is on the right track to apply more data-driven analysis to help drive advertising and partner revenue. There will be audiences outside the Shepherdess’ initial targets who will love its stories and pictures.”

Thank you to all of you who have supported us every step of the way! We are so grateful to be involved with such amazing businesses and help them realise their visions. It was this time last year that our clients at The Horowhenua Taste Trail took out three awards at the same event!
