What are the Altitude Awards?
The prestigious 2021 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.

Frequently asked questions
How do the Altitude Awards work?
Part 3. After all have been adjudicated we then find our finalists emerge. We limit the amount of finalists, to 7-8 people per category and we announce these finalists, engage with you and invite you to a localised event to present you with a certificate. Once you are a finalist you will be given the link to purchase tickets to our Gratitude Ball Awards Ceremony is where the winners are announced. Its an awards night, just like you see on TV, minus the celebrities, Glam up, bring your friends and family and see your name on the big screen. There is one winner from each category and some surprise awards on the night. For example, we have 17 categories but hand out about 26 awards. Its a wonderful occasion for networking, connection and celebrating you.
Part 4. Our team will do all they can to help you leverage the awards, whether you are a finalist or recipient. Awards hold a currency in the eyes of your clients or customers or people outside your organisation. The awards are privately run, and involve hundreds of hours of time, staffing etc. The awards night is fund-raiser for charity and whilst we do a lot complimentary, the organisers are a small business themselves and work hard to make this event special for you and a focus for your business/cause.
Is there an entry fee?
EXPECT that there will be a good chance that you may be a finalist especially if you have entered more than one category.
I’m not a member of WWA or M.A.N am I still eligible to enter?
I have entered the awards, but I’m not able to attend the awards ceremony. What do I do?
What a shame! It's 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:
When is the closing date for receiving entries?
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 the category won’t be noticed by your nominator.
I have a business partner, should we both enter?
I don’t have a great photo; can I still submit my entry?
I have answered a question and I’m under or over the word count, what should I do?
Are there any prizes?
Can my partner or friends attend the awards event?
What is the finalists announcement 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 will have a small cover charge ($20).
I have other questions, how do I inquire?
If you still have a question that we have not answered, please contact our team during office hours at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can assist you.
