The top ten ideas for Wellington

Wellington Airport have released their list of top ten suggestions, after backing down on the proposed Wellywood sign. They are:

  • Lord of the Rings sculptures
  • MIRAMAR
  • WELLYWOOD
  • Middle-earth or Frodo’s Land
  • Absolutely Positively
  • A film sculpture
  • Wetawood
  • WELLINGTON
  • A wind sculpture
  • A weta sculpture

The Dim Post comments:

Nothing says ‘film’, ‘global’ and ‘Wellington’ like a ‘MIRAMAR’ sign. And ‘Frodo’s Land’ made the top 10? What was number eleven? A word that burned out your retinas and made your eyeballs run down your face?

Have to agree.

My favourite is still a weta sculpture, and it even has a Facebook group in support of it, if you agree.

Of the ten suggestions, which are the better and worse ones? I’ll try and rank them in order.

  1. A weta sculpture
  2. Absolutely Positively Wellington
  3. Lord of the Rings sculptures
  4. Middle-earth or Frodo’s Land
  5. WELLINGTON
  6. Wetawood
  7. A film sculpture
  8. A wind sculpture
  9. MIRAMAR
  10. WELLYWOOD

What do you think?
