Time is marching on. The deadline is tomorrow.
There hasn't been that many applicants so far, so people stand a good
chance if they supply a well written application.
Otherwise it looks like we'll be able to buy the winner a new car to
drive to the conference in =)
If anyone has any interest in applying then I urge you to get your name
in. Even if you don't have time for a full application, throw in an
email saying "I'm going to apply, you'll have my life story by..."
Got to be in to win.

The NZNOG Organising committee is trying something a little different
this year and offering a small number of Fellowships to the
conference. The aim of this is to provide assistance to those people
that mightn't otherwise be able to come - but have a lot to offer to,
or gain from, the NZNOG community.
The fellowships will cover up to four nights accommodation at the
NZNOG hostel and the conference registration fee.
Five fellowship packages are being made available.
Criteria for applicants:
- They write a few paragraphs explaining why they need a fellowship
to NZNOG08 and what they hope to get out of it, and otherwise
convince us that they're not after a freebie for the sake of it being
- Their employer can't or won't cover them and they're having to
cover costs personally or they're a student / unemployed.
- They have a history of involvement in the NZNOG community, or can
demonstrate an intent to do so, or how attending an NZNOG community
will benefit them.
- It will help greatly if they are presenting a talk (or intend to)
and wouldn't be able to without some form of fellowship assistance
- They actually have to attend the NZNOG sessions, and not run off
sightseeing or touring the local breweries!
Submissions will be evaluated by the NZNOG 2008 organising committee.
Email your submissions to prog08(a)nznog.org
Closing date for applications 23:59hrs Wednesday 19th December
