An Anti-Fraud Award will be presented at New Zealand's International Anti-Fraud Film Festival, and nominations for the award are now open.
The Award will recognise a person, organisation or initiative that demonstrably distinguishes itself in the fight against fraud, and thus sets an example and is a source of inspiration for others.
Nominations for the award will close on 24 October 2016 and the winner will be announced during the Film Festival on 18 November 2016.
The nominations will be assessed by the Anti-Fraud Award Committee which comprises individuals who have had considerable experience in addressing fraud related issues in New Zealand.
Nominations can be submitted in writing and accompanied by a PowerPoint presentation, or a short video clip. Further details are available here.
New Zealand's first Fraud Film Festival, in Auckland from 18-19 November 2016, builds on the success of the Dutch Fraud Film Festival. An Anti-Fraud Award was presented at the Dutch Film Festival, with the trophy designed and created by Dutch artist Jeroen Spijker.
The organisers of the New Zealand Festival say Jeroen Spijker has agreed to make an award, cast in bronze, for the New Zealand recipient.
