In 1991 Kodak NZ Limited presented this award in recognition of New Zealand’s world acclaimed photographer, Brian Brake.
Kodak revamped the award for the PSNZ 50th anniversary and the symbolic ‘Iris” from the original trophy was incorporated into the new design.
The following members have won this trophy twice:
- Dr. N Grenfell FPSNZ
- Willems FPSNZ, AFIAP, ARPS
- B.J. Harcourt MNZM, FPSNZ
