2019 BOLD AS GOLD COMPETITION

Each year the Gold Awards has a different business-related Event Theme.  Our themes have included Rugby during the World Cup and “London Calling” during the 2012 Olympics. Others have been the Moon Race and Kiwiana with a Backyard Barbie, Geekonomics (technology) and the EcoGolds (sustainability). We have travelled to San Francisco, Melbourne, Brazil, the Pacific and Bollywood. This year it was China...

Gold Awards Guests were invited to wear their Best Chinese inspired outfit to WIN 2 RETURN BUSINESS CLASS TICKETS TO BEIJING Flying Singapore Airlines.

Jessica said:
"The Judges just loved the originality of this costume. It was made from foam rubber and folded to look like a Fortune Cookie albeit with a person inside
 it.
Inside the Cookie, the Fortune Message read: "A trip to Beijing on Singapore Airlines is in your future. Lucky Numbers: 2, 3, 11, 24" Well that prediction came true!"

"Last week was so surreal - what an incredible experience. It was so fun to be there with my colleagues too - they might have been more excited than me.
"Au" is the chemical symbol for Gold, hence the different colours in the fortune text for Welly "Gold" Awards. I used to be a chemistry teacher, and my shower curtain is a periodic table. The idea struck in the shower.
For the costume, I bought a foam mattress topper, cut it into the shape, gave it a few coats of gold spray paint, and fixed it into the fortune cookie shape. It was a fun weekend project!
I'm not sure who I'll be taking with me to Beijing. My family lives in the United States, so this may be a way for me to lure them over to New Zealand! Time will tell, and I'm accepting bids."
