C-Prize 2019

Empowering New Zealand's next generation of environmental innovators

C-Prize is a competition run by Callaghan Innovation that seeks to push the boundaries of what’s possible through technology.

This year we’re looking for teams with world-leading innovative solutions to environmental problems.

C-Prize 2019 teams will compete for exciting cash prize packages, access to expert R&D and business advice, and significant international market exposure.



With the recent move to place Auckland in COVID-19 Alert Level 3 and the rest of New Zealand in Alert Level 2 from 12 August, we have had to postpone the final C-Prize award evening scheduled for Friday 14 August

As the situation is still developing we are still considering how best to deliver the final judging and awards event, and we will update as soon as we have more information to share.

Until then, please check out our 2019 C-Prize finalists.
