The Export Council of Australia is now seeking nominations for the 2015/2016 Australian Export Heroes awards.

Just over ten years ago the Australian Export Heroes Awards were created by a group who believed in acknowledging the efforts of the people behind the companies that achieved outstanding export results.

Since its creation in 1997, the Export Council of Australia (ECA) has invited over one hundred of our leading exporters to join the Australian Export Heroes register.

Programs that involve the achievement of individuals are always special; however, there are a number of factors that make the Australian Export Heroes Awards even more special. People who receive an export hero award have fought and won on the international stage. They have made more sacrifices, travelled more miles and spent more time away from home than they would care to remember. They have that magic mix of good business skills blended with loads of passion.

Whether from big established business or from the family farm or factory, they all deserve recognition for their vision, passion and sheer hard work.

If you know someone who deserves to be thanked for their unique contribution, we invite you to please download the attached nomination form and selection criteria.

The due date for submitting a nomination is 28 February.
