Don't miss your chance to be recognised amongst Australia's best events and achievements!

There's 14 days to go to enter the Event Awards, or 320 hours, or 19,200 minutes or...the number of seconds is, well, a lot. What we're trying to say is, if you haven't started an entry yet, there's still ample time to put yourself in the running to be recognised amongst Australia's best events and achievements by Australians in the global events industry.

An easy entry process

Entering the Event Awards is done entirely online and is completely focussed on content, rather than presentation, so if you know your event inside out, completing an entry doesn't take too long and is a self sufficent process - no need to for graphic designers or fancy portfolios - instead focus on evidence: backing up claims in your entry through testimonials, articles, statistics and anything else you've got which demonstrates your success.

A category for everyone

There are 21 categories open for entries in 2016, from Best Sporting Event and Best Exhibition to Best Achievement in Venue Management, Best Achievement in Entertainment and everything in between. Check out which categories your events and achievements fit into by clicking the button below.

And if you're not sure whether you want to enter, you can download all the questions on all the entry forms from within the Entry Portal - it's free to register on the Portal and it doesn't oblige you to enter.

Reasons to enter

The Event Awards offers a great way to be highlighted and rewarded for outstanding work in the industry. All entrants receive feedback on their work from the industry experts on the judging panel and those who become Finalists, Winners or State or Territory Winners receive publicity through the Event Awards website, the wider industry media and often, through mainstream media.

All Finalists and State or Territory Winners also receive a certificate to recognise their achievement. National Winners, of course, take home a very impressive Event Awards trophy.
