The Final Deadline Extended to midnight 14 October
With an overwhelming response for Pause Awards ‘22, we’re thrilled to extend the deadline to midnight on Friday 14 October, AEST. But no more, that is it! Capisce.
Straight after the Extended Deadline, on 17 October the First Round judges get to work to shortlist the finalists for the Judging Board. We’ve added a few more excellent judges lately, please check them all out here.
The appointed and repeating Judging Board from 2021, sits down from 7–9 November in an open group discussion to debate who will become the champion of 2022!
This year, we have a Public Voting as well, which kicks off on Monday 10 October! So, round your troops and get ‘em ready to fire off votes. We’ll be naming only one People’s Choice Award winner from the public voting, which closes on 4 November.
Finalists will be announced on 9 November in our newsroom page and we’ll notify you to update your profiles in the Entry Portal with additional information, such as profile photos and testimonials just in case you win. You need to have your profile updated if you want to be featured on our website as a winner, in Pause Index and the Top10 list of most innovative companies in Australia.
Winners will be announced at the Pause Awards Night on 5 December in BOND Melbourne. If you are travelling from interstate, we have a partnership with Ovolo and QT Melbourne hotels with 15% OFF for your comfy and stylish stay, check promo codes here and start booking early!
Pause Awards night is not just for the companies that entered the awards, it’s open to the entire Australian innovation ecosystem to celebrate the end of the year and business success with us in a superstling venue. Tickets will go on sale shortly!
To honour your excellence, if you win, you’ll be presented with a Winners Pack (Basic & Premium) option which you can read more about here. Essentially, if you want our shiny new trophy design to grace your office, certificates, TrophyNFT and 17 other benefits – it’s a Premium Pack and it comes with associated fees, based on your company size.
Winners will be contacted before the Awards Night to order their Premium Winners Packs so that we can arrange to have them produced, engraved and handed out on the night. If you choose to go with the Basic option, you’ll walk away with a cool merch bag by Yourstuffmade on the night, awesome memories and expanded network.
