The New Zealander of the the Year finalists are Dr Siouxsie Wiles, Farid Ahmed and Ranjna Patel.
The awards honour extraordinary Kiwis who inspire, give hope and lead.
Wiles is a microbiologist and science communicator from Auckland.
When Covid-19 first hit New Zealand, Dr Siouxsie Wiles rose to the challenge, said Miriama Kamo, Te Koruru – patron of the awards.
"... she's stood tall to speak to hundreds of millions globally," Kamo said.
"Her work helped us all to see beyond the fear and complexity of the pandemic, to understand not only what was happening, but also how we could, and can continue to, collectively respond."
Ahmed is the Muslim community leader who became an icon of forgiveness following the March 15 terror attacks in Christchurch.
After losing his wife in the attacks, Ahmed demonstratred how faith and love could
provide a pathway to navigate deep grief.
Awarded an international peace prize for his ongoing work, he published Husna's Story in March last year, donating all royalties to St John Ambulance.
The third finalist, Ranjna Patel, is the Tamaki Health director and a domestic violence social entrepreneur.
When Patel was asked to offer guidance around family violence in in the south Asian community, she identified a crucial missing step in family violence intervention – engaging offenders in their own rehabilitation.
In 2014, she established the first Gandhi Nivas home for perpetrators in Otahuhu, providing innovative early intervention and prevention services for Kiwi men.
A study undertaken by Massey University looked at men five years before entering Gandhi Nivas and after, and found 60% of men did not re-offend.
The annual Kiwibank New Zealander of the Year Awards are in their 12th year.
The six winners will be announced in Auckland on March 31.
