Because we know that you are busy, we have tried to keep the Entry Process as simple as possible. But we still need to know about your business.

The Entry Guidelines are aimed at giving the judges a snapshot of your business with a particular focus on the previous 12 months. 


There are 3 sections covering:   1) Your business story    2) The Last 12 Months   3) Your Plans. 


Ideally, you can draw from material already available within your organisation - your website, annual reports, proposals and other promotional material.

You will NOT need to include anything confidential.

ENTRY IS FREE. The only cost being for any Tickets to the Awards Dinner.



Our catchment area is Greater Wellington - which goes up to and includes Kapiti District
in the west and up to and including Masterton District in the east.
