COMPETITIONS

QLD Tourism Awards - Nominations closing 1 June

Nominations for the QLD Tourism Awards close June 1. It takes just 5 minutes with submissions not due until August.

 

The Australian Tourism Industry Council (ATIC), owner of the Australian Tourism Awards, is excited to announce that in 2017 a new online Awards program will be introduced, incorporating a complete online entry process for each State/Territory. The notable change going forward is the move from a .pdf submission process to a web-based ‘form’ which businesses will complete online - this will be available for entrants to access shortly.

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.
