About the NZ Internet Awards

Highlights include: Public Nominating and Voting, categories that award content and function not just design and form,"Open Source" code and transparent decision processes and an exciting public award ceremony. In all this means these awards are the most accurately representative of public opinion and true excellence of any awards in the country, whether for the Internet or any other medium.

The 2001 New Zealand Internet Awards is a not-for-profit project staffed by a group of volunteers from the NZ Internet and Media Industries. Donations of money, products and services have been accepted from donors to finance essential services. However, no sponsorship or commercial influence into the award process is permitted by the project's mission.
