Entries now closed

Entries are now closed for the 2018 Premier’s Sustainability Awards and judging will commence soon. Good luck to all who have entered the awards this year. Finalists will be announced mid-August.

Entering the awards is a great chance to reflect on your project, share the achievements of your initiatives to a wider audience and be recognised as a leader in sustainability. Finalists are promoted to customers, media and local community throughout Victoria. Entering is as simple as deciding you have a project that you want to enter and submitting your entry, you don’t have to be nominated. Register at the bottom of the page for awards updates and to find out when entries open in 2019.

How to enter

Step 1

To get an idea for entering in 2019, have a look at the award categories and eligibility criteria and terms and conditions to see if entering is right for you this year and you meet the entry requirements

Step 2

Decide which category or categories your project or initiative best suits. Only one entry is accepted per category, however you can enter your project into more than one category – provided that the entry meets the eligibility criteria of each category. You will need to create a separate entry for each category.

Step 3

Start your online entry and submit by the entry deadline. There is no fee to enter.
