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 ITP in partnership with a range of IT-related bodies. This is a true collaboration of 11 industry and professional bodies (including ITP):
