AUSactive National Awards 2023 Now Open!

Warm up those fingers, get your keyboards ready, it’s time to start your entry submission for the  AUSactive National Awards Program 2023 with entries now open! 

Following the launch of the revamped program in 2022, this year’s program has been expanded to  34 categories across individual, business and community categories to choose from, ensuring  every aspect of the growing Australia health and fitness industry has the chance to be recognised  and honoured. 

AUSactive CEO Barrie Elvish said the last year’s awards program received significant praise and a  record number of completed entries with this year expected to be even bigger.  

“The AUSactive National Awards Program 2023 is set to be huge! Based on the overwhelmingly positive response we received with the revamped program last year, we’ve bolstered this year’s  program with even more categories, events, webinars and sessions to help candidates put their  best entries forward,” Mr Elvish said. 

“In addition, this year’s program will feature four Exercise Professional Active Health Summits to  coincide with the State Finalist Events set to take place around the country in July.” 

From today, the national nomination period will run for seven weeks – closing on Wednesday 2  June, which will be followed by judging ahead of state finalist and winner events.  

The AUSactive National Awards Program consists of a series of state-based events showcasing  state finalists for the majority of categories and state winners. These events will be held around  the country in July.  

The culmination of the National Awards Program will be a gala event in Melbourne on the 15th of  September 2023.  

“We are urging all our individual and business members including students to check the eligibility  for this year’s award and enter and spread the word among friends and colleagues in the  industry,” Mr Elvish said. 

“This is a fantastic opportunity to receive industry recognition for the passion and dedication you  display in your work in getting more people active for their health and wellbeing.”
