About Export Awards Programs
The Australian Export Awards is a national program that recognises and honours Australian companies engaged in international business who have achieved sustainable growth through innovation and commitment.
The Awards measure businesses against their peers based on the strength of their international growth, marketing and financial strategies.
The Awards operates as a two-tier process: exporters first achieve state distinction through their local State and Territory export award program.
Local winners then progress as national finalists and are benchmarked against their peers across the country, with winners receiving national recognition for their international success.
The Export Council of Australia manages the awards program for New South Wales, Queensland and Western Australia.
The Australian Trade Commission (Austrade), the Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ACCI), and CPA Australia partner to present the national export awards program, one of the longest running business awards programs in Australia.
- Reward: Excellence is never a result of one person, it’s the work of a team.
- Recognition: Your chance to tell the world of your success.
- Review: Valuable time spent on the application is also time spent updating your business plan.
- Results: Winning a prestigious award can assist you to open new international business opportunities.

“90% of our business is export based and we are expanding rapidly throughout Asia. As we move into new countries and regions it is important to understand the country, culture and business norms and ECA has helped us do this through their programs. ECA has also helped us improve our shipping and documentation efficiency, especially with the new GHS requirements. Overall, ECA is a wealth of information and knowledge and have always been very helpful when we have specific issues or questions.”Become a Member
