Since the pandemic’s arrival, Australians have faced all kinds of new challenges. Yet, through it all, the small business community has shown unwavering resilience, confirming that COVID-19 has by no means diminished its entrepreneurial spirit. And what better way to celebrate all that you – as small business owners, advisors, and app partners – have achieved than with the Xero Australia FY22 Awards.
Since nominations closed earlier in August, our judging panel has faced the almighty task of selecting just a handful of award contenders from hundreds of entries. Although they were blown away by the calibre of each submission, the chosen finalists raised the bar in showcasing their passion, innovation and contribution to the wider business community.
In the lead up to our winners’ announcement in October, those who placed now have another chance to take home a brand new category: the People’s Choice Award. Read on to learn more about the nomination process and this year’s contenders.
Tell us more about the People’s Choice Award
The FY22 awards program has raised the stakes with the quality and quantity of your submissions. With that said, each finalist should be immensely proud of making it as far as they have. And to help them share this achievement with their community and business networks, we’ve introduced the People’s Choice Award.
All finalists – including small business owners, advisors and app partners – now have the opportunity to win the popular vote by encouraging friends, family, colleagues and peers to show their support. At the end of the voting period, the finalist with the most votes will take home the People’s Choice Award. The winner will also receive a premium prize pack to celebrate in style.
To get involved, head to our online poll to register and vote for your favourite finalist before midnight Sunday, 12 September.
