We invite you to be part of New Zealand's premier residential building awards programme and join us in celebrating New Zealand's top homes created by Master Builders.

These awards are a fantastic opportunity for you to promote your business, celebrate and recognise the work and skill of your team, and increase your profile. 

Recognised and valued by builders and consumers alike, this awards programme differentiates you from the rest and provides you with a mark of quality to help grow and promote your business.

There is a category for everyone – from renovations, show homes and multi-units through to new builds in every price range.

There are a few important changes to the 2021 competition you need to know about – you can read about them below.

We are looking forward to receiving your entry and to once again showcasing what New Zealand’s best builders have to offer.
