Why Should You Enter? Thanks to the support of our foundation and commercial partners, the 2017 NZSEA are free to enter. But why should you take the time to submit your work? See our Top 5 Reasons for submitting...
1. The Awards are Online and Free to Enter The Awards submissions can all be done online with information which you will likely already have in your head. Just register, choose the entry category and fill out the questions. Also did we mention that they are free in NZ?
2. Help us Celebrate your success and put your profile on the Map! We work to publicise all of our finalists and winners - so help us to raise your personal or organisation profile and get noticed by businesses, decision-makers, and others in the industry. Success needs to be showcased and the Awards are a great opportunity for you to showcase your own work or that of your project, team or customer to show others inside or outside your organisation that your spatial work makes a difference for NZ.
3. Network with Industry and Government Leaders Finalists are all hosted at the year’s premier Spatial evening event – the November Gala Dinner in Wellington. There you will have the opportunity to meet and connect with the who’s who of the spatial industry and wider including government and private sector leaders.
4. Establish International Credibility The NZSEA finalists and winners receive great coverage before, during and after the awards themselves but what’s more the winners go on to represent New Zealand in the Asia Pacific Spatial Excellence Awards in Australia in 2018. Last year Wellington City Council went on from winning in NZ to winning their Category and the Supreme Award in Australia – we’re sure there are more great Kiwi stories out there which we can use to truly put NZ on the map for Spatial.
5. We have Categories for All We know that the work you are doing is very diverse and so the 2017 Awards have categories for both individuals and organisations; we also have categories for Commerce, Community, Education, Innovation, and Technology and categories for Students, Educators, Young (and not so young) professionals. These are all designed to help us collectively celebrate the diverse range of Spatial Excellence in NZ.
