There are many resources available to assist with your submission

There’s a few ways we help entrants compile award-winning submissions. The best way to start is to head to our How to Enter page, then choose your category and download the questions.


(Online Workshop content)

The NSW Business Chamber has produced a series of insightful explainer videos that help you work through the application process - tips and tricks. The videos include all the valuable content previously delivered via face to face workshops or webinar. The content is concise and user friendly - best of all entrants can access online 24/7. Each video is 10 minutes long so you can view all at once or come back to each video as you move along with your submission.  

Please note there are an additional 5 videos which will be made available to entrants upon nomination.


Filled with plenty of information and tips for your submission, the NSW Tourism Awards Entrant Handbook is a great resource to utilise when compiling your entry. While it’s focused on the state-level, it’s actually got plenty of information useful for those entering the Regionals too. You can find the key dates and rules of entry specific to our program here on our website.

Draft Submission Review

The Tourism Industry, a division of the NSW Business Chamber in partnership with Destination NSW offers complimentary draft submission reviews by an entrant support partner to entrants of the Regional Tourism Awards and NSW Tourism Awards each year. Entrants participating in the entrant support program receive a written feedback report from a tourism specialist who will review submissions and highlight opportunities for improvement.

It is up to each individual entrant to make contact with the businesses and obtain their own quotes. These businesses trade as a fee for service – they are not free. Please note: The Regional Tourism Awards accepts no responsibility for the quality of the businesses outlined below and recommends that entrants undertake their own research and reference checks before engaging.
