Welcome to the 2020 NZ Hi-Tech Awards.
Entries close at 5pm on Monday 2 March 2020.
Once submitted your entry is final and no further changes can be made.
Entries in this category are judged by a panel of both local and international judges.
Please note the following:
- You can either directly enter this category yourself or nominate someone you think deserves the award.
- We have now aligned this award with the Flying Kiwi and Inspiring Individual awards as an enduring accolade and previous years’ winners are not eligible to re-enter.
- Finalists in the Young Achiever Category cannot be a finalist in the Inspiring Individual Category in the same year; in the advent of this occurrence the entrant will be asked to select the category they will go forward in.
The winner of this category will be an individual who is:
- Under the age of 30 years old, as of midnight, on 1 March, 2020.
- Making an outstanding contribution to a New Zealand hi-tech company as a founder or employee OR to the hi-tech sector itself.
- Demonstrating qualities that single them out as a leader and achiever.
- A permanent resident (having legally resided in NZ for a minimum of five years) or a NZ citizen.
- Not a previous winner of this category (previous finalists can absolutely re-enter and are encouraged to do so).
Note: In the face-to-face finalists’ panel interview, entrants will also be judged on their ability to tell their story/narrative and capture and sustain the attention of the judges.
If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to email us at email@example.com or call us on 09 984 4140.
