ABOUT THE AWARDS

The Defence Connect Australian Defence Industry Awards was created to reflect the comprehensive role of the defence industry as a fundamental input to Australia’s capability.

The 2020 sell-out, four-state roadshow event plus live stream to all of Australia celebrated the achievements and excellence of the industry’s most successful professionals and businesses. This year, the black-tie gala event will bring together leaders to celebrate the industry’s night of nights in Canberra — and you’re invited to attend!

Recognising people and businesses, rather than products and platforms, the Australian Defence Industry Awards universally acknowledges all defence industry stakeholders — from primes, SMEs, academic institutions and associations through to high-performing individuals such as defence executives, Indigenous and female leaders, students, scientists, technicians and academics.

The awards are open to all businesses operating in Australia supporting the defence supply chain and have become a coveted accolade for organisations and professionals seeking to forge their role in the defence industry.

Be a part of this groundbreaking initiative and put your peers, colleagues or yourself forward for these coveted accolades.

Why Enter the Awards?

For organisations, securing a Defence Connect Australian Defence Industry Award will set you apart when attracting and retaining the best talent, while strengthening your position when winning defence projects or contracts. For individuals, recognition will underpin career advancement.

With a judging panel including ex-senior ADF leaders, academics, business executives, entrepreneurs and innovators, a Defence Connect Australian Defence Industry Award is peer-reviewed recognition of your capabilities in defence and passion for driving the industry forward.

With the defence industry now established as a fundamental input to capability, a Defence Connect Australian Defence Industry Award reaffirms the role of your organisation, or you personally, in advancing the defence industry and capability building.
