Each year in New Zealand's best artists are recognised by the Arts Foundation and rewarded for their talents, achievements and efforts. Waititi and Catton are recipients of the Laureate Award, with a cash award of $50,000, while Goebel receives the New Generation Award of $25,000. It's like you go off into the world with your art and here's a little helping hand, a little shove says Waititi. Catton received the New Generation Award in 2012 which she says was the reason she could write The Luminaries. I was living on the smell of an oily rag. It allowed me to survive a whole year without having to get a job, says the writer. I think that this is very cool because she is getting all of this money that she has revised by all of these people.
