Journalism Award Winners

The NZSA Business Journalism Awards were established to encourage, identify and applaud outstanding business journalism in New Zealand. Business journalists working in New Zealand’s print, online and broadcasting media are encouraged to submit entries to three discipline categories – news, feature and commentary.

The winner of the supreme NZSA Business Journalist of the Year Award is chosen from the winners of the three discipline categories. In addition, journalists who enter for any or all of these awards and who have been working as journalists for up to three years are considered for the Young Business Journalist of the Year Award.
