The Telstra Business Awards is without doubt the most prestigious business award in Australia. The awards celebrate the diversity of Australia’s small to medium businesses, highlighting the entrepreneurial spirit that marks our country as being progressive and at the forefront of change.
These are four categories to enter. Each category has a state winner, and an overall state winner. The state winners attend the national final where the national category winners are revealed.
Why enter the Telstra Business Awards?
Firstly, these are the highest profile business awards in Australia. Success ensures great media attention, boosting your business’ profile. Success also rewards staff for their hard work. Past winners comment on the high that the achievement of winning a Telstra Business Award brings.
Secondly, entering gives businesses an opportunity to take stock; to examine how far they’ve come. For many entrants, this is a first – it’s the first time they’ve sat down to look at their achievements, plus the challenges and struggles they’ve encountered.
Thirdly, all entrants receive a Business Benchmark Report that explains how they are performing compared to similar businesses.
What does entering involve?
Entering the Telstra Business Awards is a two-step process. Initially, you’ll need to complete an online questionnaire. The Telstra Business Awards’ judges then assess the questionnaires and invite selected entrants to complete Stage Two.
Stage Two is the ‘Deep Dive’, where you’ll answer questions in forensic detail about your business.
When can you enter?
Nominations and Stage One usually close in March, with Stage Two closing in April.
