ENZ’s 1 million cent scholarship campaign, celebrating Study in New Zealand's social communities reaching 1 million social followers by giving away a scholarship, is a finalist for ‘Marketing campaign of the year’. The campaign generated 1,195 applications, delivered 10,000 new followers and achieved a whopping 20% engagement across our posts (1% is the benchmark for success). 

ENZ’s partnership with ATEED and the student-owned services organisation Niesh was also a finalist in the ‘Public/private partnership of the year’ category. Together, we developed the Niesh Jobs Platform, an innovative app that provides international students with job opportunities and advice on how to prepare themselves for employment in New Zealand.

Winners will be announced in September.
