Better Together nominations

Through our partnership with Emirates Team New Zealand, Kiwi businesses can nominate a team player from their business to win one of six chances to be on the water for the action.

We're better together

In both sports and business, the importance of teamwork is pivotal to performance. Nominate a team player in your business, someone you feel is a living example of Better Together, helping to drive your business forward. Simply complete the form below, with your details and who you're nominating, and you could both be on the water for the action as Kiwibank gets behind Emirates Team New Zealand. This hospitality experience is for either the Prada Cup (15 January - 22 February 2021) or the America’s Cup (6 - 15 March 2021).

Judging criteria & FAQs

Kiwibank Better Together winning nominations will be selected by a panel of judges who will take the following into consideration when selecting winning nominations:

  1. Information provided: The nomination must clearly describe the team player for the business that is a living example of Better Together and outline the difference they’ve made to the business. This information will help judges assess the merit of the nomination.
  2. Impact: The judges will consider recent achievements and contributions of nominees to help drive the business as well as their achievements and contributions over a longer period.

When will nominations be reviewed and when will winners be contacted?

Nominations will be reviewed in two rounds during the promotion period. Round one is nominations received during the period commencing Thursday 26 November and Monday 7 December 2020. Two winning nominations will be selected from this first round, and the winners will be contacted by Friday 11 December 2020. Winning nominees and their nominator from this first round must be available to film on either Monday 21 December or Tuesday 22 December 2020. If they are not available, the Promoter reserves the right to select alternative winners.

Round two is nominations received during the period commencing between Tuesday 8 December 2020 and ending Sunday 20 December 2020. Four winning nominations from this second round will be selected and the winners will be contacted by Wednesday 23 December 2020. Winning nominees and their nominator from this second round may feature in a TVC and must be available to film on either Monday 18 January or Tuesday 19 January 2021. If they are not available, the Promoter reserves the right to select alternative winners.

If nominations received during round two don’t result in four winning nominations, the panel of appointed judges will review nominations received during round one again to select four winning nominations.

How will I know my nomination was received?

The nominator will receive an automatic email to confirm their nomination has been received.

Can I submit more than one nomination?

Nominators may submit more than one nomination, provided they're nominating a different nominee. A nominee may be nominated more than once by separate nominators.

Will I be notified if my nomination isn’t a winning nomination?

No, only winning nominations will be contacted directly and notified. We'll be contacting winning nominators and their nominee by Wednesday 23 December 2020.

I live outside of Auckland, will my travel and accommodation be covered if my nomination is selected as a winner?

A: Kiwibank will pay reasonable travel costs from the New Zealand region in which the winning nominee and nominator live, to Auckland, return; accommodation for one night on the day of sailing at a hotel arranged by the Promoter and transport to and from the Emirates Team New Zealand base. Any other expenses are for the individuals concerned.

What happens when racing on a scheduled day doesn't go ahead, for any unforeseen circumstances? e.g. weather

If racing is cancelled prior to the hospitality starting e.g. the night before the race, then the hospitality for the winning nominations will be moved to a reserve day (if available). If racing is cancelled once hospitality has started for the day, the hospitality for the winning nominations will continue as per plans either at the Emirates Team New Zealand base, or on the hospitality boat with a harbour cruise. All details are subject to change and best endeavours will be made to advise of any changes as soon as possible.
