How the Judging Works

Once the dates are confirmed, you will have the opportunity to nominate your business through our application process and enter in up to two categories. You will be required to provide supporting information including examples, financial information and testimonials. The judges will be looking for factual evidence and examples that demonstrate why your business stands out from your competitors and what makes your business excellent. Any financial or sensitive information received will be kept in the strictest confidence and not be made public.

The Peoples Choice Award will be decided by a 50/50 split between public voting and the judging panel.

All businesses will be automatically entered into the 'Network NZ Business of the Year' category.
