Computerworld Excellence Awards 2008 Open

Computerworld Excellence Awards 2008 Open for Entries

The Computerworld Excellence Awards is calling for entries from ICT professionals who can demonstrate an outstanding application of technology. Recognised as the country's leading ICT awards programme, thirteen categories are now open to find New Zealand's top ICT talent. Individuals and teams that win will receive national acclaim as the country's best and these awards are a highly sought after accolade amongst ICT professionals.

To reflect the changing drivers and challenges of the ICT industry, Computerworld has introduced awards for the ICT Educator of the Year, Excellence in Infrastructure Innovation and Best Sustainable ICT Project.

"Skills, infrastructure and sustainability are either already significant concerns of IT management or emerging concerns," says Computerworld editor Rob O'Neill. "For that reason we thought we would highlight activity in these areas alongside other more longstanding award categories."

The 2008 programme includes three individual awards (ICT Educator of the Year, Young ICT Talent and CIO of the Year), plus team awards in areas such as education, small business, health and government.

Each category is judged by an independent panel of three judges, with some of the country's most prominent IT and business leaders involved, adding credibility to the achievement.

Entries are open now, with final submissions due by Friday 11 April.

For a full category listing, eligibility details and entry information, please go to or contact Claire Baker on 09 375 6050 or email Claire_Baker[at]
