Submissions for the 2019 Regional Tourism Awards are now open

Ready to go? Here’s where to start:

  1. Check the award categories and choose the one which best reflects your core business. In some cases, you may enter more than one category, each with a seperate submission.

  2. Read through the Rules of Entry.

  3. Nominate online, and pay the entry fee of $100 per submission (if applicable).

    • To nominate, visit the Quality Tourism Australia website, create an account, then go to the Australian Tourism Awards portal to register your nomination. 

    • Note: At this point, we suggest you also complete the business standards questions (pre-assessment for QTF level 1 & accomodation standards) in the portal. This is a requirement for all entrants who are not already accredited through these programs. There is no additional cost for this, and no obligation to proceed further with formal accreditation.

  4. Work through the questions in your category – you can do this in the online portal or download as a Microsoft Word document (be sure to allow time to upload your responses if you choose to complete them offline first).

  5. Utilise our Award Resources when required.

  6. Review your submission to ensure you’ve answered each question fully and uploaded images and supporting documentation to the online portal.

  7. Submit your completed entry through the online portal by 5pm on Friday 24 May, 2019.
