NZSEA Awards Are Now Open

Awards recognise the latest innovations and top achievements within New Zealand’s spatial industry,” says Hadyn Smith NZSEA Commercial Partnership Manager.

Spatial is a fast-growing corner of our economy and is increasingly relied upon by some of our most critical sectors as they grapple with issues like urban growth, resilience and the future-proofing of our transport systems. 

Each year we’ve seen more entries and leading edge work from the industry. I look forward to seeing the trend continue this year.

The Awards will again be held in Te Papa Museum of New Zealand in Wellington on 17 October 2018. New Zealand professionals, students, educators and organisations within the spatial industry can enter free of charge.

The deadline for submissions is fast approaching, with entries due to close on 27 July 2018. If you are interested in entering you will need to act quickly.
