What Award categories are there ?
There are six categories you can enter in the Financial Literacy Australia (FLA) Awards. Visit the Award categories page for more details.
Who can enter?
The Awards are open to all individuals and organisations involved in improving financial literacy in Australia, including corporate, government, community, education and business sectors. The program, resource, research, or other activity being entered must have been active in the past few years.
What can I win?
The Awards event will be in Sydney in March/April 2017. All Award recipients will receive a trophy, an Awards showcase publication and free tickets to attend the Awards presentation event. There are two Awards available in each category: Outstanding Achievement and Highly Commended.
If I received a FLA Award or MoneySmart Week Award previously, can I enter again this year?
You can enter again but your application must relate to a different financial literacy program/resource or research to the one that received an award previously.
I entered my program, resource or research previously but did not win an Award, can I enter again?
Can I nominate others for an Award?
Individuals and organisations can nominate themselves or others for an award, however they must receive permission from the nominee if they are nominating a third party.
How much does it cost to enter?
Entry is free.
How recent does the work have to be?
Generally your entry should relate to work that has been active in the past two years. The “contribution” Award may relate to a contribution over a longer period of time. If you would like to discuss this, please contact us.
Financial literacy is only one aspect of my product, service or research; can I still enter these Awards?
Yes, we acknowledge that financial literacy often forms part of a much broader mission for many organisations. We encourage a broad and diverse range of organisations to nominate for an Award.
How do I apply?
Please visit the Enter Now page of this website. Applications are submitted via online system SmartyGrants. The system allows you to save drafts of your application, so you do not need to complete your entry in one sitting.
Do I need to provide details of referees?
You will need to provide details of two referees who can support your application. Referees could be a recipient of your work or a peer, unrelated to you or your organisation, who can support your application.
What is the judging process?
Awards will be judged on merit against the judging criteria. A panel of review will evaluate all applications and provide a shortlist to our judging panel. The judging panel, chaired by Colin Neave AM will be announced shortly.
Will I receive feedback on my application if I am unsuccessful?
Specific feedback will not be provided for each application.
Will I be notified prior to the awards ceremony if I have received an Award?
Award recipients will be notified under embargo prior to the Awards Presentation evening.
I still have a question, how do I get in touch?
Please email your question to Financial Literacy Australia Awards and we will get back to you.
