Entry tips

  • Concise answers and dot points are good: Your answers should demonstrate that you have processes, plans and strategies in place to facilitate key business practices.
  • Selecting categories: Before commencing the entry process, take the time to determine the most suitable category or categories for your organisation.
  • Consider the questions carefully: Ensure that your responses provide the information specifically requested.
  • Answer each question: Do not refer judges to previous answers. This suggests that applicants have not considered the question properly and makes the judging process more difficult.
