These FAQ apply to the 2017 clinicians challenge - they process may differ in 2018. Announcements will be made in the HiNZ eNewsletter - sign up here.


Q. Does it have to be a clinician who is the entrant?

A. Yes. Non-clinicians can be part of the wider project team and mentioned within the entry documentation, but it needs to be a New Zealand based clinician (nurse, doctor, allied health) who is named as the corresponding entrant, who could collect any prize on behalf of the team.


Q. Can I add team members to my entry?

A. Yes, you can name up to 10 team members (''co-authors'' on the form) when you enter.


Q. I am a clinician but I'm not currently practicing as one, as I am working on some software. Am I able to apply?

A. Yes. The person who applies must have been a practicing clinician of some type, at some time, in New Zealand. As long as this is the case, you can still apply even if you are now working in the 'digital' side of digital health.


Q. Is there a word limit?

A. Yes, there is a 1100 word limit on the text entry form, which includes the 100 word executive summary.


Q. Can I upload images or graphs to illustrate my entry?

A. Yes, you can upload a supplementary document with this information if you wish. Please keep the upload document brief as the judges are not obligated to read long appendices. Your key information should be in the entry form text boxes.


Q. Do I have to include references?

A. These are not essential. If you feel it is necessary then you could include references in an uploaded document if you wish (putting them in your text boxes will use up your word count).


Q. What happens with ownership and intellectual property?

A. The challenge isn't a business incubator. Neither the Ministry nor HiNZ gets involved in any ownership and intellectual property discussions. The grant is purely for you to use to help you further your development and/or do research/training to support your project. It is up to you, how you choose to fund / set up an ongoing business model, if one is required.
