The entries received in 2016 were all of a very high standard and the NZHIT Innovation Awards are an excellent opportunity to showcase the work our members are doing along with their commitment to enabling the quality of healthcare in New Zealand. A key feature of this year’s Awards is that the winner will be announced at the HiNZ Conference being held in Rotorua from the 1st to 3rd of November, 2017.  The audience at the awards ceremony represents a wide cross-section of people from both the national and international health sectors so this is an excellent opportunity to raise your profile.

It’s simple to enter –

  • Complete the 1-page entry form and submit by Friday 19th of May 2017 (this is only to notify us of your intention to submit an entry)
  • Complete and submit your full entry by Friday 30th of June
  • The criteria and supporting tips clearly spell out the key points required for your entry – follow these to make the job easier for yourself and the judges!
  • Your entry is not expected to be a “hundred page” document that takes hours to prepare – a high-level, succinct submission that directly responds to the criteria is all that is needed

We look forward to receiving your entry and please direct any queries you may have to –
