Hit Me With Some Winning Tips!

It's down to you to really demonstrate to the Judges why you're the winning entry...here are some quick tips on what the judges look for and why they've included it in the category judging criteria:

Innovation is important: They want to know what you've done that is new or gives you a competitive edge in the market.

Quality and Industry Excellence: How did your event or achievement pave the way for a new benchmark in leading the industry and demonstrating what the Australian Events Industry can do?

Acknowledge the difficulties: The judges assess what you achieved with the resources you had and in the context of your environment and circumstances - tell them the challenges you encountered, whether budgetary, logistical or something else.
