Seven NZ finalists announced in Internet awards

InternetNZ is excited to announce seven New Zealand companies that have been named finalists for their innovative work with the Internet.

The Australia and New Zealand Internet Awards (ANZIAs), co-created by InternetNZ and .au Domain Administration Ltd (auDA), has been engaging with hundreds of stakeholders through this awards programme, for over eight years.

This year saw a record number of applicants received which is a true reflection of the rapidly expanding Internet sector, and the innovative thinking, within the Southern hemisphere.

InternetNZ's Deputy Chief Executive Andrew Cushen says it's testament to New Zealand's drive for digital innovation that sees us with seven finalist spots for the ANZIA awards.
