How East Coast Tasmania Tourism Awards are chosen

You can either self-nominate or be nominated by another individual, business, Destination Action Plan leadership group, chamber of commerce or other organisation that sees the great work you are doing. To nominate a business that is not yours submit the name of the business to ceo@eastcoasttasmania.com.au.

We will then contact that business to advise they have been nominated and invite them to complete a submission.

Winners will be selected by a panel of judges nominated by East Coast Tasmania Tourism.

Who is Eligible to Enter?

The awards are open to all businesses that service visitors located in, or actively operating on the East Coast of Tasmania. You do not need to be a traditional tourism business, but your business must interact with visitors in some way.

Winners will be announced at the Awards Dinner, 30 October 2021 at Spring Bay Mill. Tickets will be available shortly.

The Tasmanian tourism industry acknowledges the Tasmanian Aboriginal people and their enduring custodianship of lutruwita / Tasmania. We honour 40,000 years of uninterrupted care, protection and belonging to these islands, before the invasion and colonisation of European settlement. As a tourism industry that welcomes visitors to these lands, we acknowledge our responsibility to represent to our visitors Tasmania’s deep and complex history, fully, respectfully and truthfully. We acknowledge the Aboriginal people who continue to care for this country today. We pay our respects to their elders, past and present. We honour their stories, songs, art, and culture, and their aspirations for the future of their people and these lands. We respectfully ask that tourism be a part of that future.
