NZ Excellence Awards Collaboration

Nominations are now closed: 2016 NZ Excellence in IT Awards

The Institute of IT Professionals, in association with 10 of New Zealand's leading tech associations, is pleased to announce the 2016 New Zealand Excellence in IT Awards, recognising individuals and teams that have truly excelled in IT.

Winners will announced at the NZ Excellence in IT Awards gala dinner at ITx 2016 on July 12, 2016.

ITx 2016 is New Zealand's conference of IT, the broadest independent tech conference in NZ. More about ITx. 


The X's: Recognising the people making IT happen

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 focus on companies and vendors, the Excellence in IT Awards exclusively celebrates our people.

What makes the Excellence in IT Awards different is that it recognises the real people behind software and information technology - the people that make IT work. The unsung heroes and champions of our sector. 



Sector-wide Awards Collaboration

The Excellence in IT Awards are coordinated by IITP in partnership with a range of IT-related bodies. This is a true collaboration of 11 industry and professional bodies:
