IITP Excellence in IT Awards


The 2014 Excellence in IT Awards

The Institute of IT Professionals is pleased to announce the inaugural Excellence in IT Awards, recognising individuals and teams that have truly excelled in IT.

Nominations are now open (see below), and close on 25 July 2014. Winners will be announced at the Excellence in IT Awards gala dinner at ITx in October 2014.

ITx is New Zealand's conference of IT, the broadest independent IT conference in NZ, hosted by IITP, CITRENZ and CSANZ. More information about ITx.

 

Recognising the people making IT happen

What makes the Excellence in IT Awards different is that it recognises the real people behind software and information technology - the people that make IT work.

While other awards programmes do an excellent job of recognising the companies and vendors who do great work, the Excellence Awards are focused squarely at the unsung heroes and champions of our sector.
