Ngā Kāwai Tohu mō te 2020

Award Categories for 2020

The NZOSA are split into seven categories, with nominations for the awards made by the open source community, including businesses, government agencies, individuals, community groups and more. A panel of judges, known figures within the open source community, consider all nominations and select the finalists for each category. All finalists are invited to attend the awards gala dinner where the winners are announced.

The judges also select a number of nominations, which become the finalists in the People's Choice category.
