Victorian Tourism Awards

What will an online Awards program mean to entrants?
From 2017, entrants need to answer questions online instead of preparing a pdf submission. Each question will also provide entrants with the ability to upload supporting images. For those entrants who have entered previously, this means you will no longer need to conform to formatting rules, page limits and page layouts. Instead of the previous 30 page limit, there will now be a maximum word limit and image upload limit. Every entrant will be able to print out a report of all responses once completed.

Will there be any changes to questions and/or categories?
All categories will remain the same. There are some small question changes in some of the categories. These changes will be on the Awards website.

Will there be regional workshops this year?
Regional workshops will be held on the Mornington Peninsula in May. Other regions will host them through May. Dates will be posted on the Awards website.

When will nomination and entry close?
Nominations will close on 30 June as per normal and entry remains free and will need to be submitted by 4pm on Monday 13 August – time will fly so get started!

When is the Gala Ceremony this year?
Save the date: Thursday 22 November 2017.
