2016 NZ Excellence in IT Awards: Nominations open

A collaboration of 10 of New Zealand's leading tech associations this week announced nominations have opened for the 2016 New Zealand Excellence in IT Awards.

The NZ Excellence in IT Awards are designed to recognise the real people behind IT and software and the individuals and teams that make IT work.

The Awards are a collaboration of the Institute of IT Professionals with nine other IT associations including CITRENZ, NZRise, the Project Management Institute of NZ, the NZ Software Association, InternetNZ, Health Informatics NZ, GOVIS, the IT Service Management Forum and the NZ Open Source Society.

IITP chief executive Paul Matthews says "While existing awards programmes do an excellent job of recognising the companies and vendors who do great work, the NZ Excellence in IT Awards are focused squarely at our people - the unsung heroes and champions of our sector."

Nominations for the awards open today, with winners announced at a gala dinner as part of the ITx 2016 Conference in Wellington in July. ITx is New Zealand's conference of IT and will is the largest independent general IT conference in New Zealand.

Finalists and winners will gain significant national exposure."
