In 2017, the Canberra Region Tourism Awards will be utilising the new Australian Tourism Awards online portal, for administration, judging, nominations and submissions associated with the program, along with all other states and the Northern Territory. This has been introduced by The Australian Tourism Industry Council (ATIC), owner of the Australian Tourism Awards and is aligned with the portal for the Australian Tourism Accreditation Program.
The Australian Tourism Awards portal will provide entrants in each state and territory with a streamlined and efficient system for the nomination and submission process. As such, the submission process will move forward in 2017 from a PDF submission requirement to a web-based ‘form’ which entrants will complete online.
Chair of the Australian Tourism Awards, Daniel Gschwind says, ‘In 2017, entrants can look forward to entering completely online. The new format will eliminate formatting rules and allow entrants to focus solely on their responses to questions. In addition, there will be other enhancements which will make entering into the awards an easier process for all.’
