Thank you to all those who have nominated a BLAKE Leader for 2020. Nominations are now closed.

The annual BLAKE Awards recognise and celebrate people whose leadership has delivered high impact results and contributed to a more sustainable future for Aotearoa socially, culturally, environmentally or economically.

Each year we look to celebrate extraordinary New Zealanders who have created positive impact from all areas of New Zealand society.

There are four leadership award categories:
