The search for Australia's Favourite Event 2014 starts now.

With entries into the 2014 Australian Event Awards now closed and the judges locked away reviewing them, now is the time to nominate your favourite event and raise its profile so the public can get behind it and vote.

Anyone can nominate any public event that they attended between July 1 2013 and June 30 2014.

What's it all about?

There are many public events staged every year around Australia - and we want to know which one is Australia's favourite.

Australia's Favourite Event is the opportunity for all Australians to vote for their favourite public event held in Australia from 1 July 2013 to 30 June 2014.

Anyone, including event organisers across the country can nominate their favourite event before voting starts. Voting is free.
