Our awards website should help answer all of your questions, however, here are some FAQs, plus other key information to help you submit and attend the Australian Sales Leadership Awards.

Please contact our team here if you have any additional questions or need help lodging your submission.

Do I have to be nominated for an award to enter?

You do not need to be nominated to enter the awards. You can enter the awards directly here

What happens when I nominate? How do I nominate someone for an award? Can it be anonymous? Can I nominate myself?

To nominate a colleague or friend, click here. You are also welcome to self-nominate. You will need to supply us with the email address and phone number of the nominee so that we can contact them to let them know of the nomination.

When you nominate someone for an award, they receive an email to notify them of the nomination. You can choose whether you wish them to know of your nomination or if you wish to remain anonymous.

Can I make multiple nominations? Does it increase the chances of becoming a finalist?

You are welcome to make more than one nomination or nominate multiple people. Making more than one nomination does not increase the chances of becoming a finalist. Finalist selection is based on the submission.

How do I get started?

You can download our checklist which will help you plan the preparation of a quality submission, including gathering support from key stakeholders in your organisation (your sales leader, the marketing and corporate comms team and HR).

Does it cost anything to enter?

Entering the Australian Sales Leadership Awards is free.

Can I make a submission on behalf of someone else?

You can make your own submission or you can enter on behalf of someone else.

Can I submit for more than one category?

You are welcome to make as many submissions as you are eligible for. You can check category eligibility on the Australian Sales Leadership Awards.

How do I know which category I’m eligible for?

You can check the Australian Sales Leadership Awards to see which categories you are eligible for.

Why do you want my photo?

Finalists may have their headshot displayed alongside their name on screen when they are announced at the event. We may also use headshots to announce finalists on our social media campaign.

Why do you want a video of “What does success mean to me?

We may use this video as part of a compilation or in promotions for our events. If you do not wish this to happen, then do not supply the video.

What are the chances of making it as a finalist?

This is impossible to answer. Follow the tips above to increase your chances. Some categories have very many entries and it’s a very difficult process determining finalists. We do limit the number of finalists, so if you don’t make it, don’t be put off as you may have only just missed out. Remember that you do have to be “in it to win it”!

Why should I enter? What happens when I make it as a finalist?

Getting the recognition that you deserve by winning an award or becoming a finalist can be a real boost to your business. Our events also provide a great opportunity to network with like-minded companies and individuals. You are provided with a finalist seal and certificate that you can display on your website or in your office. You are also provided with a press release to help you spread the word to your network.

Can I get feedback on my submission if I didn’t make it?

Although we would love to give everyone feedback on their submission, they are reviewed by multiple judges who are not always able to comment on each submission.

Do I have to attend if I make it as a finalist?

You are encouraged to attend if you make it as a finalist. The event gives you an opportunity to be celebrated and to celebrate in recognition of the outstanding work that you have achieved in your field.

How does the judging process work?

A judging panel made up of highly respected industry professionals with a broad range of experience will be chosen to examine the submissions. Judging is allocated to ensure that there is no conflict of interest in respective categories. Each judge will be assigned a number of categories and will be asked to score each submission in those categories based on all the documentation provided by the award entrants. Several judges are assigned per category to ensure a range of expertise and opinions. The aggregate highest score will determine the winner of each award.

Who sees my submission?

All information is highly confidential and is only shared with the Australian Sales Leadership Awards team and the judges for that category. The information is not published, and any permissions would be sought if required.
