Hi Tech Awards

Entries are now open for the 2018 NZ Hi-Tech Awards

View all the categories on the Hi Tech website.

Entering the Hi-Tech Awards gives you:

  • Recognition
  • Publicity
  • Networking
  • Opportunity to refine your value proposition
  • Exposure to investors

Entries are securely reviewed by our panels of local and international judges; it’s a great opportunity to get your business in front of some of the biggest names in the business.

You can also nominate a company or individual who you think is worthy here. We will follow up with the nominee and give them a gentle nudge to complete the entry process online. We really want to make a strong push this year to celebrate and encourage diversity in our industry. We would love it if you could help us by nominating companies and individuals who you think are leading the way.
