About the Altitude Awards

An annual awards program to honour our everyday community

The prestigious 2020 Altitude Awards are now open. The Altitude Awards have now been running for seven years and exist to acknowledge and recognise the achievement of everyday people across a range of sectors:

Small Business, Leadership, Individual Achievement and Contribution to Community.

The Awards are a social enterprise arm of Women with Altitude and the Mens Altitude Network. All proceeds go to a lower profile charity to raise awareness. This year our charity is Feel The Magic, an organisation that helps children who have lost a parent or sibling.

We have awarded over 250 business, social enterprises over recent years.
We understand the blood sweat and tears you undertake to follow your dreams.
This is the communities way of recognising all that you are accomplishing.

You are often inspiring to others, and making a difference with every step you take.
It’s time to step up and own it.

What are the Altitude Awards?

Founded in 2012, The Altitude Awards are presented by the entrepreneurial community, Women with Altitude and the Men’s Altitude Network. The social enterprise arm of these organisations, the awards program honours the achievements of individuals and businesses.

Local people in small business, social enterprises, volunteers, managers are achieving great things and we want to celebrate and champion these amazing people.
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.


There are 16 categories, it is free to enter, and we can promise you, that this is a robust process for review and reflection.


You can nominate someone you know or, you can enter directly into your chosen category

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?

In 2020, Entries close midnight 26th July, unless extended by the organisers. Announcements will be made if the entries are extended.

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 word

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, tables of 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.

Awards are wonderful for getting eyes onto your business or cause.
