What if I can't attend the Awards Night

You don’t need to be able to attend our Awards Gala Event in order to be a winner. 

Our awards are given to the most deserving business through a peer reviewed process and that isn’t determined by whether you can attend on the night. 

All winners who are not present in person will receive their prize pack in the mail. 

Do I have to be big to win?

Your business turnover, and the number of clients you serve is not in question here.

We aim to recognise no matter what size your business is that service excellence and commitment to doing what you love is at the forefront of your business.

How is my application being assessed?

Our judges follow a list of criteria to assess your entry.

This is done anonymously by an independent panel of experts who work in the party industry, or who have skills that are complimentary like design, artistic skills, branding, large scale events, and lots more amazing business people who volunteer their time to assess your submission.
