    2023 Awards for Excellence Nominations Register

    Award Nominations  

    Council subscribers of LGMA may nominate projects for the LGMA Awards for Excellence.  Councils may submit numerous projects.  Multiple nominations are permitted in all categories.  A project or initiative may be nominated in up to two categories and each will be treated as a separate nomination.  If nominating a project in more than one category, nominators should ensure the nomination is tailored to address the category requirements. A fee of $350.00 applies to each nomination.  A tax invoice will be issued once a nomination has been received online.

    Nomination Guidelines - sections 1-5 should be no more than one page, or a maximum of 350-400 words, each.

    Section 1: Introduction and Overview - Nominations must provide an overview of the project/initiative outlining the key outcomes and achievements.  The overview will be published in the Awards for Excellence publication so it should offer a standalone description and be tailored for a local government audience.

    Section 2: A statement outlining how the nomination meets the category requirement i.e. how the project exemplifies Collaboration or Teamwork or Innovation etc.

    Please refer to the Award Category section of the Nomination Guidelines or on the Awards Brochure.

    Section 3: A description of the impact/outcome including evidence of: 

    Its impact on council and or the community; How the outcomes were measured and
    Details of the project's ongoing status (If applicable).

    Section 4: A statement regarding the possible transferability of the initiative for use in other areas or councils and comment on why this project/initiative stands out from other initiatives across the state (including to what extent it is unique).  This section does not apply to Above and Beyond nominations.

    Section 5: Supporting information - submissions may include references from people affected by the project or other evidence outcomes including: media articles, community newsletters etc.

    Section 6: Social Media Release - please include a promotional media release. This should be 200 words and tailored for the general public rather than an informed local government audience.  Please prepare the media release in the third person (i.e. do not refer to we or our - instead reference council or the ABC community).  Your media release will be posted to the LGMA socials (Facebook and LinkedIn) in the lead up to the Awards.   Additionally, your release will be profiled in the Awards Magazine which will be distributed prior to the award announcements.

    Section 7: Please provide a simple, short and sharp video recording (MP4) – 2 minutes maximum – outlining your project/initiative as described in Section 1.Should you be unable to attend the Celebratory Event, and your submission is a winning entry, we may utilise this recording as part of the event programme. 

    Section 8: Nominations must include:

    • Online Registration for each nomination
    • Four hard copies of your submission (including sections 1-6 above).  An original copy of your submission is passed on to each of the Award Judges in order to avoid risk transfer.
    • A USB with a copy of your submission (named as: Council name_Project title_Category)
    • The video recording for section 7 should be on the USB (named as: Council name_Project title_Category) 
    • 3-5 high resolution photographs are also to be included on the USB.  Preferably these are to be included in a single submission document but, if this is not possible, they should be named Council name_Project title_Category_Photo.  Numbering should be applied where more than one document is included i.e. Part 2 of 3.
    • Nomination Guidelines are here.

    Nominations must be received in full by 3.00pm on Wednesday 19 April, 2023.

    Awards for Excellence

    LGMA 

    Level 7, Quay Central

    95 North Quay

    BRISBANE   QLD   4000

    All nominating councils are encouraged to participate in the celebratory event on Thursday 25 May, 2023.  Please note we do not pre-release the finalists in advance.

    Judging

    An independent judging panel will assess all entries. Each category will be judged on its merits. In assessing nominations, the judges will consider the environment in which the project has been initiated. As a result, the biggest and most financially significant projects will not automatically be assessed as more meritorious than smaller, lower impact initiatives. Rather, a relative assessment will be made regarding which projects have done the best in the context of what resources they have available and the environment in which they operate.

    Although a project may be entered into two categories, each project is only eligible to win a single category. If a project is deemed the winner in a category, it will not be considered in the subsequent category.

    The judges’ decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into regarding entries. Finalists are not pre-announced. Each Award category winner will receive recognition in LGMA’s publication, The Journal, as well as a certificate and trophy.

    Member Only Webinar - Retaining our Local Government up-and-comers

    Given the traditional pathways to local government leadership now no longer apply, expectations of workplaces have shifted, unemployment rates are at record lows and the ‘security’ offered by a public service career is less valued than it has been in the past, how will local government retain great future leaders?

    This panel of three, current and future leaders of local government will discuss what it will take to keep them, and others like them, in the sector. They will discuss what barriers they perceive to a long local government career.

    Day/Date: Thursday 23 February 2023

    Time: 9:30am-11:00am

    Cost: This webinar is provided for free for officers who are members of LGMA.

    The Women in Local Government Conference was developed to empower women in the local government context. The conference aims to consider the application of leadership to engage women in the sector, developing techniques for the 'every-day' leader and creating a workplace culture that values the contribution of women in all aspects and levels of the organisation.

    By connecting women across the local government sector, we aim to provide those women with access to valuable insights, effective real-world strategies from skilled facilitators, and plenty of opportunities to network, collaborate and share ideas.
