Thinking about entering – here’s some ideas!

•Irrigation Enhancing the Environment - projects and research that have led to environmental improvements

•Resilient Communities - projects and research that have led to improved community outcomes

Eligibility

•The prize can be awarded to an individual or team but only one entry is permitted per person or team

•We encourage entries and nominations from irrigators, schemes, user groups, environmental groups, industry and university students

•The innovation may be new, or a reinvention or reapplication of an old technology

•The innovation must demonstrate a clear, recent or potential impact to irrigation in New Zealand

•The individual or nominated team representative must be either a New Zealand citizen or a New Zealand permanent resident

•For team entries one person must be nominated as the team representative - this person will be the public face for the innovation
