The 2018 Business SA Export Awards celebrate exporting excellence in South Australia by recognising the most dynamic and innovative businesses in our state. Through showcasing South Australia's most successful exporters, these awards inspire greater involvement in exporting and recognise these outstanding businesses which call South Australia home.

The 2018 Business SA Export Awards operate as a two-tier process - with exporters first achieving state distinction through the Business SA Export Awards program, before progressing as national finalists to the Australian Export Awards. As a national finalist, South Australian Award winners will be benchmarked against their peers across the country, with winners receiving national recognition for their international success.

Winners of the Business SA 2018 Export Awards will be formally announced on Thursday 4 October at a gala dinner to be held at Adelaide Convention Centre.

All winners automatically progress as finalists in the 56th Australian Export Awards to compete for an Australian industry award, including the coveted Australian Exporter of the Year.

For more information please visit Business SA Export Awards.

In 2018, we are proud to announce a brand new State recognised category in relation to wine and beverage.  This new category will recognise the excellence in wine exportation throughout the state.  It does not feed through to the national awards but is still a recognised achievement at State level in its own right. Entry form here.

The 2018 Business SA Export Awards will also take in two Design Awards, recognising that successful exporters begin their journey with just one product, and that product is created through impeccable design.

The Business SA Design for Export Awards is a joint initiative of Business SA and Good Design Australia.  We want more South Australian exporters and designers to begin that journey, whether they are Adelaide-based or working in a regional community, by taking part in the 2018 Business SA Export Awards and the Business SA Design for Export Awards.

If you are exporting your products or services and use design as a key business development strategy, tell us your story.

Potential entries could come from fields including:

• Products: Consumer products, building and hardware, environmental, industrial and commercial,   lighting and furniture, sports and lifestyle, scientific and medical, transport, and food

• Digital: Apps, software, digital media

• Services: Tourism, education, health

The two Design Awards added to the 2018 Business SA Export Awards are:

• Best Product Design - Entry form - Guidance and Q&A here.
