Call for Entries
opens on 17 May ‘23
We’re thrilled to announce the highly anticipated launch of the sixth edition of Pause Awards, the premier innovation awards program in Australia.
We’re on the lookout for the most ambitious and forward-thinking companies and individuals who are driving innovation and transformation across various industries in the country.
The entries for the Pause Awards ‘23 will open on 17 May, and we have a special two-day Launch Entry fee, so mark your calendars and be ready to grab the absolute best rate. You can signup now to be reminded for the launch.
Since its inception, the Pause Awards have recognized over 250 bold companies and individuals as an independent innovation agent, comprising 60 local and international industry experts. Our awards program is highly competitive, and we only award the highest scorers in each category. Our judging board doesn’t fill the spots for the sake of it; instead, we award only the most deserving winners.
This year, we’re introducing a few exciting updates to the awards program.
- Awards program opens earlier this year on 17 May ‘23
- New Launch Entry Fee ($295) will allow you to grab the absolute best rate in 48 hours!
- Six award levels, including Finalist, Public, White, Grand Prix, Champion and Diamond
- New this year: Champion is the best in a Category Track and Diamond is the best of all Champions – all entrants will go automatically into the draw, and if successful, they will receive a free trophy to take home at the Awards Night.
- Entry and Trophy fees will be slightly adjusted
- New trophy colour for the Champion and Diamond winners
- Few new categories are in the making
- New Entry Bundles: 1x free when you buy 5; 2x free when you buy 10 and 3x free when you buy 15 entries
- Discounts: Repeat entrants get 10% off entries, and for successful invites 20% off before you pay and submit your entry
We’re currently looking for new judges to join our esteemed panel of local and international industry experts, so watch out for the notifications in the next couple of weeks.
Sponsors and partners, we have some exciting new opportunities to engage with this year, so please get in touch if you’d like to support Australian champions in business.
