As a not-for-profit organisation, we rely on funds to allow our organisation and award presentations to thrive each year. Therefore, we cannot offer finalists complimentary tickets.

Banksia’s preference is that only one representative from your group or organisation accepts the award on stage; however, you are welcome to receive the award jointly if your initiative is through a joint partnership.

Once you have submitted your entry, you will receive a confirmation email, and Banksia will continue to inform you of any relevant information throughout the judging process.
