  • You can nominate someone you know, someone you admire or even yourself. You’ll simply need to provides the supporting information as to why you think they deserve to be on the Top Innovators list.

Why nominate?

  • We want to use the Top Innovators to recognise and celebrate talented individuals in the agriculture industry. With corporate and media partners, we’ll be promoting the Top Innovators, judges and nominees across a range of media. We’ll do a sit-down interview with the top 5 nominees that will be published online and across social media. Aside from this, there are many other reasons to enter / nominate:
    • Nominees will get recognition for their outstanding commitment to the industry
    • Improve team / individual morale
    • Highlight key activities within Agriculture that can be shared with the respective community

Nomination tips:

  • Tips for completing the nomination form:
    • Complete the form each time for an individual, if you want to submit multiple nominations please use multiple forms.
    • The word counts are simply a guideline, please ensure your entries are concise but provide a full picture as to why you think the individual should be nominated.
    • Please ensure you pay particular attention to all compulsory questions.
    • Unless otherwise specified, achievements outlined in the entries should have occurred in the last 24 months.
    • The judging will aim to recognise individuals who add outstanding value to the industry and/or their organisation.
    • Judges will be looking for innovation against the individual’s situation – for example each innovation doesn’t have to be groundbreaking for the entire industry – we will be judging it on how an individual took an idea / company / practice and put it into play.
