Fieldays Innovations 2022 are coming soon.

Connect with industry professionals, investors, and corporate decision-makers, and test your innovation with a highly targeted audience.

This year’s award categories are suitable for innovations at various stages of their life cycle, from new innovations to commercialised innovations well-established in the market.


Innovation Awards entrants will showcase their inventions at the new and enhanced Innovations Hub.

At the Innovation Hub, the Awards entrants can test their innovation to a highly targeted audience and receive feedback from potential customers about further development.

Also, the new and enhanced build will allow visitors to experience how innovations evolve in a tangible way through the three stages: Prototype, Early Stage, and Growth & Scale.


Fieldays No.8 Wire National Art Award is a showcase of the imagination and creativity of Kiwi artists and DIYers, challenged to create innovative artwork with predominantly No.8 Wire.

The awards, now in their 25th year, provide artists with a unique opportunity to turn a simple agricultural product into a compelling piece of art that tells a story. 

The awards are hosted by Waikato Museum, partnered with Momentum Waikato Community Foundation, and supported by the Society. 

This year, renowned Kiwi sculptor Virginia King will judge the entries, and artists have the chance to win their share of $8,500. [/fdvc_hoverbox]
