Ngā Tohu Pūmanawa Herekore o Aotearoa

NZ Open Source Awards

Gala dinner postponed until Tuesday 8 February 2022

The Open Source Awards recognise and celebrate the outstanding work done with free and open source software and the artistic, scientific, and social outcomes it delivers in New Zealand.

E āhukahuka ana, e whakanui ana Ngā Tohu Pūmanawa Herekore i ngā mahi papai rawa i oti mā ngā pūmanawa koreutu, herekore hoki, me ngā hua toi, pūtaiao, pāpori hoki e puta mai ai i aua mahi i roto i Aotearoa.

For New Zealand, free and open source technologies not only represents an opportunity to contribute and be recognised on the world stage, but also to deliver real competitive advantage. Encouraging collaboration, openness, honesty and transparency allows for more effective tools and software to evolve, helping people, communities, and organisations to meet the challenges they face.

The New Zealand Open Source Awards recognise and promote:

  • the direct contributions of individuals to free and open source projects or the promotion of free and open source philosophy.
  • exemplary use of free and open source by New Zealand organisations.
