“This year’s international judges will bring a new perspective to the judging process, that will not only elevate the AUSactive Awards but also give all entrants the chance to be seen by world-renowned industry professionals.”

“Last year we honoured 222 state and national finalists and celebrated 34 exceptional category winners in front of a sold-out Gala audience of 400 people,” Mr Elvish said.

“With almost 500 valid submissions received and more than 13,000 votes in the People’s Choice Awards, we are expecting this year’s numbers to be even stronger!
