MEDIA RELEASE SEPTEMBER 2010
FINAL CALL FOR MILKYBAR® KID ENTRIES
The search is well underway for one of New Zealand’s most well-known young adventurers – the MILKYBAR Kid – but there’s
still time to put your child forward.
Since August 9, parents and guardians have been invited to film a short audition video of their children using a script
from www.milkybar.co.nz and upload them to the website for their chance to fill the iconic boots of this much-loved
However, the closing date for the search is drawing near. Video entries must be uploaded by midnight on September 19, 2010 – so get out your handycams and video-enabled cellphones and get filming! Public auditions are also being held at
branches of The Warehouse, New World and Pak n Save nationwide – simply go to www.milkybar.co.nz for dates and times.
The chosen child will star in the new 2011 MILKYBAR television commercial, and enter the hearts (and lounges) of Kiwis
as part of one of New Zealand’s most iconic television campaigns. The child just needs to be between 7 and 10 years old
and possess a certain star quality.
Parents and guardians of enthusiastic children are reminded to visit the MILKYBAR website to download the audition
script then upload an audition video of their child anytime until midnight on 19 September 2010. Children who are
selected as Semi-Finalists will then be invited to attend a casting call in Auckland or Wellington, when the Top Ten
Finalists will be chosen. The public will then see the Finalists on Good Morning, in magazines, and on the MILKYBAR website, and vote for the Finalist they think would be the best New Zealand MILKYBAR
Kid. A panel of judges will pick the ultimate winner, who will be revealed on 19 November 2010.
