  • A project or programme designed to address a specific organisational need that achieved the desired outcome during the two years immediately prior to the submission date for entry; or
  • A programme implemented for the first time during the two years immediately prior to the submission date for entry, which is contributing towards the organisation’s desired outcomes and is intended to be continued as part of “business as usual” in the future; or
  • A specific intervention that has significantly raised the profile of learning and development in the organisation and had had a notable impact on individual and/or organisational performance and processes within the period immediately prior to the date for submission.

Entries should have been implemented within New Zealand or, if implemented overseas, must have been implemented by a New Zealand resident company or New Zealand division of an international company. Membership of NZATD is not required to place an entry in the awards.
