We celebrate the New Zealand Burlesque Community with the New Zealand Burlesque Industry Awards, the Golden Garters. With categories ranging from the cheeky such as Best Derriere, through to the popular voted awards like Favourite Routine and seriously judged categories like the Contribution to the NZ Industry award, these awards officially recognise the contribution of those within the growing New Zealand Burlesque Industry.

Previously the award ceremony has been held as part of the closing event of the New Zealand Burlesque Festival. As of 2019, the awards are a stand alone event, celebrated at an awards dinner in Auckland during April. Good luck to all and thank you for your contribution to the ever growing NZ Burlesque Industry.
