Entries to the Thirteenth Annual Indian Business Awards will close at 6 pm on Thursday, September 30, 2021, Chairman of the Independent Panel of Judges Chip Dawson has said.

He said that because of lockdown restrictions and related difficulties, the last date for entries was extended from September 15, 2021 to September 30, 2021.

Forms can be downloaded from our website www.indiannewslink.co.nz

Completed forms must be sent only by email to iba2021chipdawson@xtra.co.nz

Forms should not be posted, faxed, courier or sent through any other method.

Open to South Asian Communities

Mr Dawson said that our South Asian communities are leading in the world and working together to create a better future for our children.

“We live in changing times and if I have learned anything in the past 18 months since our first lockdown, it is to be flexible and open to change. The government is working very hard to keep us safe and protected against this unprecedented pandemic. And as we know, it keeps changing just when we believe we have it under control,” he said.

Mr Dawson said that our South Asian communities have continued to pull together in these troubled times as a beacon to all communities throughout New Zealand.

“We are honoured to see the courage and dedication even in difficult times,” he said.

While Indian Newslink owns the Business Awards brand (along with our other brands), none of us is involved in the judging process. Since its establishment in 2008, entries to the Awards Programme have been evaluated by a panel of judges who have no interest in the management of the company or with any of the sponsors.
