Gain recognition for driving Australia’s defence programs forward



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

This esteemed awards program celebrates the achievements and excellence of the industry’s most successful professionals and businesses.

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.

2022 dates to be announced. Register your interest today to receive future updates on the next awards.

Why Enter the Awards?

For organisations, securing an 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, an 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, an Australian Defence Industry Award reaffirms the role of your organisation, or you personally, in advancing the defence industry and capability building.
