The NZI Rural Women NZ Business Awards 2022 are now open for entries.

The Awards, run by Rural Women New Zealand and insurance company NZI, take place each year and are designed to celebrate rural women entrepreneurs.

Rural Women New Zealand national president Gill Naylor says the Awards are a great opportunity to showcase the contributions rural women entrepreneurs make to rural communities.

“We are delighted that NZI will join us for the sixth year as our Premier Partner in presenting the Awards.

“Last year’s Awards had the highest number of entrants since their inception 10 years ago and we were especially pleased with the diversity of the entrants’ enterprises and the range of their locations across the country,” Naylor says.

She says the Awards provide an opportunity for rural business owners to showcase their creativity, innovation and achievements.

“We want to encourage women living in rural and regional New Zealand, who own and/or operate rural enterprises, to enter the Awards this year so that we can celebrate and promote their achievements,” Naylor says.

NZI executive manager agencies and schemes, Christina Chellew, says the insurer is delighted to support the Awards and Premier Partner and recognise the work done by rural women.

“I have no doubt there will be another impressive showing from our entrants which will make judging especially difficult for the panel,” she says.

Entries close on Friday, 29 July at 5pm.  For details on how to enter visit:

“If you are a rural woman in business, enter; if you know a rural woman in business, encourage her to enter," says Naylor.
