Your Location, Our Expertise

In 2024 Awards Absolute is 30 years strong. Through many of those years we have been providing cost-effective solutions to clients nationally and internationally via online and remote access options. With the aid of virtual meetings, online technologies and awards software, Awards Absolute continues to:

  • Work harmoniously and efficiently with association CEOs and Boards, government departments and agencies, as well as corporate Marketing departments and award committees

  • Establish and review Asian Pacific, national and state awards that continue to thrive under our guidance and management

  • Manage multifaceted award processes with sophisticated, credible judging and assessment systems

  • Facilitate online awards workshops on behalf of clients

  • Offer online courses for businesses determined to win awards and beat their competition

  • Manage complex auditing operations, providing peace of mind by ensuring the correct entrants are named as winners

  • Produce successful live and hybrid awards celebrations that honour winners while engaging guests.


Australia's first and only dedicated awards management company, Awards Absolute offers unmatched expertise, with 30 years of awards management and submission writing experience and absolute discretion.

In 2007 the International Live Events Association (then known as the International Special Events Society) acknowledged our founder, Liz Rivers, as the unrivalled global expert in the awards arena. Much has changed in the years since, but not our dedication and pursuit of excellence on behalf of our clients.

In 2018 Awards Absolute modified our structure and intent, and our Activate Regional Australia arm was born. The company now operates on the profit-for-purpose model with no less than one-third of our Executive Directors’ time plus an equal share of our profits invested to achieve our mission: to aid in the financial and social development of regional Australia.


As part of operating on this model we committed to facilitate activities that specifically and directly benefit regional and remote Australia’s wellbeing on a national level. Awards Absolute takes this stated social responsibility very seriously, with three key projects developed for this outcome: the annual Grey Nomad Awards and Australian Street Art Awards were established in 2018 and the Art of Attraction Tourism Summit was first held in 2019.
