It is time to recognise New Zealand's outstanding property professionals.

The Property Institute of New Zealand (PINZ) Annual Awards celebrate the important role of the property profession and recognises the best property professionals from around the country. They are a marker of the Institute’s recognition of member’s success and the professionalism and leadership that the recipients contribute towards charting the course for property professionals. By gathering to recognise and celebrate the success of members we are demonstrating that, as members, we are stronger together.

The awards are presented at the PINZ awards function and dinner which is held in conjunction with the annual National Conference which will take place at the Cordis Hotel in Auckland between 14-16 July 2021. Finalists and award winners are encouraged to attend the National Conference at their own expense.

There are nine award categories and we are now taking nominations for the 2021 awards.

Personal information and marketing consent

By making a nomination, nominees consent to their personal details being used for the purpose of considering their entry. The details provided on the nomination form, including the nominees photograph, may be used for promotional purposes and a list of award winners will be published across a variety of PINZ communication channels.

Intellectual property

By making a nomination, nominees confirm that there is no infringement of any intellectual property right (IP). Individuals being nominated must declare that ownership of any IP associated with the nomination is theirs alone, or if the IP is shared with others, the consent of those other joint

holders of the IP has been obtained and is acknowledged as part of the nomination. When an individual is being nominated by others without their knowledge, the nominator must undertake due diligence to be as certain as possible that there are no contestable IP matters involved. If there is doubt, it is better that the nomination is made with the consent of the individual being nominated. PINZ, in making any award, will consider that any intellectual property rights rest with the nominee and will not undertake any investigation itself or be held responsible for any breach of IP.

It should be noted that nominations for the Iain Gribble Memorial Award and the John M Harcourt Memorial Award must come from the branch network.
