Introducing the NZ Excellence in IT Awards
Posted on 18-May-2016 20:18. | Tags Filed under: News.

The New Zealand Excellence in IT Awards are sector-wide awards recognising the individuals and teams who have truly excelled in our industry. While other awards do a great job of recognising companies and vendors, the Excellence in IT Awards exclusively celebrates our people.


The Excellence in IT Awards are a broad collaboration of ten IT representative bodies and associations including: 


  • The Institute of IT Professionals NZ (IITP)
  • NZRise
  • The IT Service Management Forum (itSMFnz)
  • NZ Software Association
  • Internet NZ
  • Project Management Institute of NZ
  • Health Informatics NZ
  • GOVIS, and
  • The NZ Open Source Society

The Excellence in IT Awards has one aim: to recognise the very best in our profession. To that end, we are calling for nominations rather than entries – we want you to nominate those you think are doing a great job, says IITP Chief Executive, Paul Matthews.


“We are deliberately asking for nominations rather than entries because we all know those people who do a tremendous job but who don’t like to blow their own trumpet. This is your chance, as IT professionals, to nominate someone for their hard work.”


The awards are split into two segments: sector awards and three supreme awards.


Sector Awards 


  • IT Project Excellence Award in partnership with Project Management Institute of NZ
  • Excellence in Software in partnership with the NZ Software Assn
  • Excellence in Health Informatics in partnership with Health Informatics NZ
  • Excellence in IT Service Management in partnership with itSMFnz
  • Excellence in Public Sector IT in partnership with GOVIS
  • Excellence in IT Education in partnership with CITRENZ

 Supreme Awards 


  • Tech Entrepreneur of the Year in partnership with InternetNZ
  • Young IT Professional of the Year in partnership with NZRise
  • New Zealand IT Professional of the Year

Nominations are open now and close 3 June. Finalists will be announced on 23 June and the winners announced at the Gala Dinner as part of the ITx Conference on 12 July.
