Applications are now open for WA businesses to showcase their excellence and world-class achievements at this year's Western Australian Industry & Export Awards.

In 2019, we look forward to another year of honouring and celebrating businesses from across WA for their ingenuity, dedication and contribution to our economy through job creation and increased prosperity for the community and the state.

Whether your business is just emerging into the market, or firmly established - with 16 award categories, there are multiple opportunities to enter these prestigious awards and be recognised for your success.

Watch the video below to hear what our past applicants have to say about the benefits of applying to these awards.

State and national distinction

As a winner of a Western Australian Industry & Export Award, your business will have the distinction of joining a prestigious list of WA's industry and exporting best. Winning can also:

  • Raise your company profile
  • Improve your business credibility
  • Increase your access to new markets
  • Enhance your existing business relationships
  • Boost your staff morale

Winners of the Western Australian Industry & Export Awards will be announced at a gala presentation dinner on Monday 23 September 2019 at the Hyatt Regency, Perth.

The awards also provide a pathway for distinction on a national level at the Australian Export Awards.

Thirteen WA award categories feed into the Australian Export Awards, with WA winners in these categories having the distinction of automatically qualifying as a finalist for the national awards and the chance to vie for the accolade of Australian Exporter of the Year.


New in 2019 - WA Exporter to Asia Award

This year we are excited to add another State based category to the awards - the WA Exporter to Asia Award: For outstanding achievement by an enterprise in any industry sector, that has attained success in exporting goods or services to Asia.

This will not feed through to the national awards but, is still a recognised achievement in its own right at state level.
