Judging will take place in two stages.

At the first stage, a subcommittee of the judges will evaluate each entry and choose a small number of finalists for each award category.

When shortlisting is completed, we will advise all applicants whether they have been chosen as a finalist.

Finalists will be given full details and advice on how to prepare in advance of the judging days in late July/early August.

Finalists must be available to present to a judging panel.

Judges’ decisions will be final. All winners will be announced at an evening event at the Museum of New Zealand, Te Papa Tongarewa in Wellington, on 16 September 2021.
