Hi reader

NZ Web Fest has done its dash for this year, so we’re happy to be able to share with you the full list of winners.

If you submitted, were selected, nominated or won, sponsored, supported, volunteered, attended or observed from afar - thank you very much :)

If you were at the ceremony and took photos, please share some with us either directly or by tagging @nzwebfest or #NZWF17 in your social media posts.

That's pretty much it for us for our 2017 edition. Thanks again for your part in it, and we hope to see you again next year.

Keep up with our news and announcements on our social media channels. Submissions for #NZWF18 will open on 1 February via FilmFreeway
