About this award

APAC Insider is excited to announce the return of the Australian Enterprise Awards for an eighth consecutive year! Australia represents nearly a quarter of our 105,000-strong circulation base, and so over the years we have been committed to shining a light on the very best of Australian business.

Australia is known for its diverse and resilient economy, with the country experiencing an uninterrupted period of growth over the three decades prior to the COVID-19 outbreak of 2020. In the years following the pandemic, Australian industry has experienced various challenges but has been recovering at a quicker rate than many of the world’s other top economies. In fact, Australia currently ranks as the twelfth largest GDP worldwide, which it has achieved despite its much smaller population in comparison to the countries placing higher in the list.

Australia’s economy generates over $4.5 trillion in output, with the Manufacturing sector being the biggest contributor to this at a fifteen percent share of total output. In terms of revenue, Banking and Finance is Australia’s biggest industry, generating over $360 billion in 2023. Today’s financial landscape is increasingly turbulent, with volatile inflation rates, stunted revenue growth, rising funding costs, and regulatory issues just a few of the challenges faced by the sector. These hurdles do, however, also present a lucrative opportunity to those who can adapt to changing customer demands and fulfil the latest technology and sustainability standards that are transforming the Finance industry.

Technology and digital adoption are a major influence not just on Finance, but on multiple segments of the Australian business landscape. The Healthcare and Retail sectors are both evolving rapidly, with digitalisation at the core of this transformation. Companies who can effectively harness developments in automation, data analytics, and personalisation will improve their efficiencies, drive growth, and provide a more streamlined customer experience. A 2020 survey of CEOs by professional services group PwC showed that 73% of Australian CEOs view the speed of technological change as an obstacle to their business growth. This statistic reveals just how much a company can benefit if they are able to stay on top of this trend and implement digital technology into their operations ahead of their competition.

Through the Australian Enterprise Awards 2024, APAC Insider will recognise the key players driving innovation across the variety of sectors that make up Australia’s dynamic business market. We consider submissions from large organisations and SMEs, at company and individual level, and use a strict merit-based approach to assess all nominees.

Those successful in the programme will be provided with a free-of-charge marketing toolkit to celebrate their award. As well as this, APAC Insider also offers the chance to upgrade to one of our bespoke commercial packages, for those really looking to get the most out of their success. These include extended coverage in the dedicated Australian Enterprise Awards supplement, as well as a range of physical and digital winners’ items designed to maximise the promotional benefits of inclusion.

If you would like to submit yourself or a deserving candidate you know for consideration in the Australian Enterprise Awards 2024, simply click the ‘Vote Now’ button and follow the instructions provided. We wish all those taking part the best of luck this year!

Frequently asked questions

How long has APAC Insider been in circulation for?

APAC Insider has been in circulation since 2015 and has been building up an impressive reputation for its excellent look into the sectors it covers. The publication aims to serve the vast Asia-Pacific region, which is home to more than one third of the world’s biggest businesses including the likes of Toyota, Sony and Bank of China. APAC Insider is published by AI Global Media, a UK based publishing group launched in 2010.

Where did my nomination come from?

A company or individual can be nominated in various ways, including self-nomination, nominated by a third-party, or nomination by our in-house research team. In the interest of maintaining high response rates, we do not ask nominees to reveal their identity. The main ethos of our awards system is that your ability to succeed is not linked to the number of votes received, with the most pertinent belief behind this being that all awards will be received on merit. As a means of identifying spam votes and countering cyber-threats, we monitor the website for unusual behaviour.

What happens if I agree to be considered further?

As we look to keep maximum focus on relevant candidates, we ask all nominees to accept their position on the shortlist. This gives individuals complete control in their decision on whether they would like to move forward with the award. There is no cost for you to be added onto the shortlist or if you go on to win. Nominees who accept will then proceed to our internal vetting procedure. Nominees are given an opportunity to present their own data which gets considered alongside the information collated by our research team. Please note it can take up to 8 weeks for research to be completed.

Who selects the winners?

We employ an impartial panel of individuals to conduct all the research to a high standard, and our research team are well versed in fact-checking and mediation. At the helm we have a veteran academic leader with international academic and training experience. Our continued use of this panel plays a key part in enforcing APAC Insider’s stance that winners are not determined by popularity, but by their contributions to the sector.

Is there a winner’s ceremony?

While we appreciate everyone will want to celebrate their success, this can look different to all winners. Many of the awards are also open across various regions within the Asian Pacific, and therefore many separate events would need to be arranged. Alongside this thought, we believe in keeping a cost-effective marketing philosophy, and do not wish to add further expense to any business or individual. Our press announcements are made digitally, online and across our network to enforce our position as digital publishers. We aim to provide you with the tools (both digital and physical) to generate real-world value.

If I do win, what happens next?

There is a short press embargo in place where we ask winners to refrain from any public announcements, giving us the chance to prepare the different means of coverage we offer. During this period the program manager will liaise with you to agree on the most appropriate coverage for you. Our main feature takes the form of a digital magazine, but we also offer physical trophies, wall mounted plaques, digital certificates, web-based advertisements, and press releases. The range of options are aimed to make the awards tailor-made to each individual firm, regardless of budget.

Are there any costs involved?

All awards are at no cost to be nominated or to win. We do offer a variety of paid additional benefits for our winners, and these are entirely optional and merely supplementary to your award rather than essential. To demonstrate our commitment to no mandatory fees, all winners are offered a free of charge promotional package. Our company policy will always remain: regardless of budget, our clients should always be able to garner the full value of the award.

I have another question that isn’t listed here.

If you have any questions or wish to discuss the award in more depth, please connect with a dedicated awards coordinator using the contact details provided. They will be able to assist further and guide you through the process.
