Celebrating innovative Australian businesses

The Australian Export Awards is one of the longest running business awards programs in Australia. Now in its 60th year, it’s a national program that recognises and honours Australian exporters who have achieved sustainable growth through innovation and commitment.

The Australian Trade and Investment Commission and the Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry partner to present this national program, and it’s made possible through the collaboration of the States and Territories.

Supported by many of Australia's leading corporations, export facilitators and industry groups, the Australian Export Awards program remains a high priority of the Australian Government.
