Sponsorship

We sponsor events and awards in New Zealand that align with our goal of an open Internet for all of New Zealand.

Sponsorship decisions are made by the InternetNZ staff who sit on the Sponsorship Committee. We distribute $50,000 annually, approved by our Chief Executive. We consider sponsorship applications every two months, according to our sponsorship process guide.

Applications are assessed on their fit with InternetNZ’s Mission, the likelihood of success and their potential for community impact for the sector.

If you are interested in applying for InternetNZ sponsorship, please fill out this sponsorship application form.
