Stage 2 - Call For Applications

Once the nomination form has been submitted, the nominee will receive an email from FL asking them to complete an application to be fully entered into the awards. This step is important as it gives us consent to contact and to share their stories.

You do not need to be nominated to complete an application.  Go ahead it is your time to shine.

Stage 3 - Regional Judging

Once we receive the completed application form, the candidate will be entered into the first stage of the judging process. This is the stage where we select the regional shortlist. Once the judging is complete, we will be in touch to let you know if your application has been successful and you have been shortlisted to go through to the next stage.

Stage 4 - Regional Awards

As a shortlisted candidate, you’ll be invited to attend the regional events where the regional winners will be announced.

Stage 5 - Live Judging Day

All regional winners will then be invited to attend a live judging day and to meet a panel of judges. This is the stage where we pick the national winners to be announced at the grand final Summit.

The judges will be required to make an assessment of the applicants against the criteria on the application form. Each category will be scored out of 5.
