For this year's Hnry Awards, we're asking you to submit an entry on our chosen theme:

What does 'indendepent earning' mean to you?

Whether you or someone you know is freelancingcontracting, or working several side hustles or gigs to earn an independent income, now’s the time to share your thoughts and ideas around what it means. What are the good things about it? The bad? What does it mean to you today, and into the future?

It's FREE to enter, and entries can be in any form you like - you can submit a video, a song, a poem, a design, an illustration, a sculpture – it's entirely up to you! Submit your entries below and you can be in to win a share of $25,000 and some national recognition! 

Be sure to submit your entry by March 21st 2020 to be in with a chance to win! Our panel of expert judges will announce the Top 10 on March 30th 2020, and then it'll be up to the New Zealand public to vote for their Top 3 favourites, who will be announced on April 21st 2020 to coincide with 'World Creativity & Innovation Day'.

Entries can be rough and low-key - so don't invest a lot of time or money into this, as you won't be judged on production values. Our judges will be looking for the following:

  • Creativity
  • Something entertaining and engaging
  • Demonstration of a skill or craft
  • Alignment to this year's theme

Be in to win some serious cash

The Top 3 entries, to be chosen online by the NZ public, will win a share of $25,000!

Get recognition from industry experts

Our panel of expert judges will select a shortlist of 10 entries for the public to choose from.

Open to ANYONE in New Zealand

Whether you’ve been a creative for 10 years or 10 minutes, all entries will be considered equal (entrants must be over 18 years of age).

The creative choice is yours

Create anything for your entry: a video, a song, a poem, a design, a sculpture – you decide!

Time to win some financial freedom...

There are heaps of awesome prizes up for grabs:

  • The Top 3 entrants will win a share of $25,000
  • The Top 10 entrants will win a year of free Hnry
  • Hnry merch, including sunglasses and t-shirts
  • And most importantly, some major recognition of your unique creativity
