The Western Australian Industry and Export Awards are the State’s most prestigious business awards, with the State Government sponsoring them since their inception in 1988.
Now in their 27th year, the Awards promote and acknowledge the achievements of the State’s business community across sectors that include agriculture, manufacturing, medical research, information technology, education and creative industries.
The Awards have helped open doors for emerging and established exporters and provided well-earned recognition for companies that are true leaders.
This Awards program recognises the successes and celebrates the diversity of local businesses through 15 industry and export categories. The Awards are open to a wide range of organisations; from small developing firms to large established corporations; from manufacturing and engineering companies through to consultancies and service providers in a wide range of industries; from exporters to firms with solely local markets.
There are also categories for innovation, marketing and design and engineering. Don't think because you are a small company that you shouldn't apply.
The nomination process is split into two:
Companies entering in these categories do not have to be exporters. These three categories are specific to WA only.
