The Minister of Defence Awards of Excellence to Industry
The Minister of Defence Awards of Excellence to Industry were established by the New Zealand Defence Industry Advisory Council (NZDIAC) in 1998 to highlight and reward the contribution made by industry to Defence.
Previous winners have demonstrated the ability to: supply superior equipment or services; be innovative in design or implementation; provide excellence on an ongoing basis; utilise or develop wider markets; undertake technically advanced activities; and increase efficiency, effectiveness or economy for Defence.
The award is an engraved trophy which past winners have been able to use to good effect in their marketing efforts.
The annual presentation of the awards takes place at the awards dinner, which concludes the New Zealand Defence Industry Association (NZDIA) Defence Industry Forum in Auckland.
Nominations for the 2016 Awards close 4 August 2016.
Further information about the Awards, including details about how to make a nomination, are available from the Awards Information page.
