2021 sees the return, for the 5th year, of the Broadband Compare Awards as the newly enlarged and rebranded NZ Compare Awards.
The NZ Compare Awards will cover every aspect of the New Zealand broadband and power industries and will culminate in a gala awards night at the Hunua Rooms in Auckland, on the (rearranged due to COVID date of) 16 February 2022.
As part of the awards, NZ Compare has introduced a brand-new category which will be awarded to an NZ organisation or individual that is making a difference within their industry, community, people, staff or peers through leading positive change, improvements and inspiring others to follow their example. Entrants do NOT need to work within the Broadband or Energy sectors of NZ to be eligible and the judges are looking for entrants that are Making a Difference across all walks of New Zealand life. Supported by Neighbourly.co.nz, the prestigious "Making a Difference" award was created in response to the challenging year that businesses and individuals have experienced in 2021.
"Judged by an independent panel of New Zealand experts and presented at our gala awards event, the NZ Compare Award for Making a Difference provides a unique stage on which we can recognize and reward the achievements of a business or individual who has Made a Difference in 2021. We’re really looking forward to seeing how Kiwis have adapted and focused to help one another during the last 12 months", said Gavin Male, Founder of NZ Compare.
The awards are now open for on-line entry at https://awards.nzcompare.com/ and the closing deadline is 3 November 2021. There is no charge for individuals or organisations to enter the "Making a Difference" Award.
