2019 Finalists

The Team at The David Awards is working hard to bring you a new and improved event in 2021. Keep an eye out for our new website, and an announcement on key dates before the end of February.

To be notified when The David Awards 2021 opens for entries, please sign up to our newsletter.

The David Awards are back and better than ever with another great bunch of finalists. After a year on ice, the event has been re-energised and is once again recognising amazing Kiwi businesses at the smaller end of the scale.

“We all agreed the quality of entrants was the highest we have seen since we started,” said long-time Judge Pam Martin, adding the Solo Meo category had been hugely popular. “This made it especially hard to pick the finalists.”

Winners of The David Awards 2019 will be announced on www.thedavidawards.co.nz at 11 a.m. on 9 October. Tune in to see it first here.
