What are the Altitude Awards?
The prestigious 2023 Altitude Awards are now open. The Altitude Awards were founded in 2012 and were created to recognise the achievement of everyday people across a range of sectors: Small Business, Leadership, Individual Achievement and Contribution to Community.
The awards program honours the achievements of individuals and businesses. This includes not for profit organisations, charities and social enterprises.
There are multiple categories, it is FREE to enter, and there are only a few questions to answer. This is a great process for review and reflection.
You can nominate someone you know or, you can enter directly into your chosen category.
Why the Altitude Awards?
Founded by Women with Altitude creator, Andrea Turner-Boys, The Altitude Awards were designed to reward individuals who are excelling in the areas of small business, leadership and community.
Local people in small business, social enterprises, volunteers, managers are achieving great things and we want to celebrate and champion these amazing people.
We know that this can lift an individual, business or a cause and we think the world needs more positivity and and gratitude.
Awards are also a currency! They have gravitas and are a talking point for businesses to share.
A confidence builder for individuals and a great way to focus on gratitude and what we have accomplished rather than what’s lacking or wrong.

I have entered the awards, but I’m not able to attend the awards ceremony.What a shame! It so important that finalists are at the awards. We have found that people who think they won’t win, are often the ones that do, so it’s important to be there to celebrate yours and your fellow finalists. We suggest the following: • Is there someone who can attend in your place? • If not then we would suggest you consider entering at another time.
When is the closing date for receiving entries?Deadline for submission of entries is midnight of October 31st, Tuesday.
I have been nominated and the category I have been nominated for doesn’t match my circumstances, what should I do?"This sometimes happens when friends and colleagues nominate. Not to worry, just select the category that is appropriate for you and submit to that category. Your friends, colleagues and customers are just excited to see you enter, and in our experience, the category won’t be noticed by your nominator.
I have a business partner, should we both enter?Yes, you are welcome to nominate with all of your business partners or team.
I don’t have a great photo; can I still submit my entry?We must have a photo for the entry to be validated. Choose a photo that you love and submit that. The photo file submitted should be less than 2MB in size.
I have answered a question and I’m under or over the word count, what should I do?If you are under the word count and you are happy with the content of your answer, then submit. If you are over the word count, work out how far over. The judges have to read scores of entries, it’s important that you don’t go over by more than 40 words.
Are there any prizes?Sponsors often supply prizes to the winner of their category. When you attend the awards ceremony, you will find out!
Is my partner or friend(s) able to attend the awards event?For the Awards ceremony, you can have as many or as little people attend that you like. Tickets are the same price for all, and tables of 5 or 10 will have a discount.
What is the 'Finalist' cocktail party and can I bring friends to that?This event is complimentary for the finalist, and you will be presented with a framed certificate. Accompanying friends are welcome and will have a small cover charge ($25). This event will go ahead subject to the current Covid-19 guidelines.
