Judging Panel
  • Our judges represent a range of knowledge, expertise and skills in the Parks and Leisure Industry and each judge is matched to a relevant category.
  • Selecting the right mix of judges has been important to us, and where possible, we have tried to ensure each award has one judge from each region and gender equity is observed.
  • There are 11 region awards and each one has 4-5 judges allocated plus a Head Judge who chairs the judging deliberations.
  • Please note the Frank Stewart Distinguished Service award is a national award and will be judged separately.

Our judges volunteer their time and are a valuable and valued part of Parks and Leisure Australia membership who work towards Australia’s recognition of industry excellence.
