​Women in ICT Awards 2017 - Nominations extended until 10 May

Channel to celebrate achievements of a talented crop of female front runners who have become influential figures in New Zealand’s ICT industry.

Nominations for the Reseller News Women in ICT Awards (WIICTA) have been extended due to high demand, with final submissions now expected by 10 May.

Following an overwhelmingly positive response from the local channel since its inaugural launch in 2016, partners, vendors and distributors can now celebrate the achievements of a talented crop of female front runners who have become influential figures in New Zealand’s ICT industry.

Reflective of IDG’s continued dedication to the local market, WIITCA celebrates gender diversity and recognises female excellence in the Kiwi channel.

This year, WIICTA will be held at a lunch celebration at the Hilton Hotel in Auckland on Tuesday June 20, honouring individuals across five categories; Rising Star, Entrepreneur, Community, Innovation and Technical.

Nominations can be submitted by a colleague, an employee, employer or business partner; or you can self nominate, with entries closing on 10 May.

The finalists will be revealed in late May before an esteemed panel of judges - across partner, vendor and distributor markets - cast their votes.

Here’s a quick rundown of the categories…

Rising Star
