The work for awards submissions, however, can be like zzz zzz zzz...

Except not for us.  We really enjoy it and we're really good at it.  So much in fact, that we've launched! is a free resource site packed full of details on awards you can enter your company (or yourself) into. And the best bit, you can go ahead and work on those submissions yourself, or yell out to us and we'll help you with as much or as little support as you need. 

Over the last 12 months, DCG (that's us) has had some success with award submissions with many of our awards clients getting to finalist stage and others winning their categories.  We're pleased to have supported Thomas Mitchell to receive NZ Young IT Professional of the Year, and Victoria MacLennan to receive NZ IT Professional of the Year at ITx Awards.

It doesn't stop there, our successes have led our client CricHQ to take home awards from ITx and reach finalist level for NZ Innovation awards and others off-shore.

And so now we've launched which will help you to choose awards for your company to enter and support on hand if you need it.
