About the NZGFA Awards

In 2019 the NZGFA introduced four awards to its annual conference programme. The awards seek to recognise and commend individuals or associate organisations who have made a significant and positive contribution to the ground spreading industry. They also serve to reflect the level of professionalism, responsibility and innovation that exists across the ground spreading profession, and within the Association.

Nominations for the 2021 Awards are now open. Nomination forms can be downloaded below. Please ensure you read the terms & conditions and refer to the criteria for each award, by clicking on the award links.
