To enter the Orange Outstanding Business Awards, your business must be Nominated by a member of the public during the Nominations period.

NOTE: Due to coronavirus (COVID-19) the 2020 Orange Business Awards was cancelled. If your business was nominated for the 2020 Awards, your business is eligible to submit an entry without a new nomination in 2021.

All Nominated businesses are subsequently able to submit an entry into the Award categories that best suit the business.

There are a few options available for your business to submit an entry. We also have categories for employees (or self-employed) to self-nominate an entry into supplemental categories.

To enter the Orange Outstanding Business Awards, please follow these steps:

    1. Read the entry Conditions
    2. Please review the Categories page to see example businesses
    3. Your submission will be marked using a rating scale and judged only on what you write. Please do a fantastic job of representing your business in up to 300 words to give yourself the best chance. Please review the Judging criteria.
    4. Submit your entry – you will be able to Submit/Edit your submission until April 2021 (date to be determined).

Businesses must complete the online awards submission for their chosen categories by April 2021 (date to be determined). No entries will be accepted after this date – any entry submitted by that date will be reviewed as is.
