The finer details:

Who can be nominated?

Any person with disability who is employed as a supported employee with a Disability Enterprise in Australia pledged to the BuyAbility network.

Who can nominate?

Anyone who personally knows the nominee.

Can I nominate myself?

No, self-nominations are not permitted. But why not ask someone to nominate you?

How will the judging work?

Initially, the nominees will be competing in their state or territory. A panel of BuyAbility team members will choose a maximum of five (5) finalists per state and territory.

The finalists will be uploaded to the BuyAbility Facebook page and there will be one week for people to vote for the nominee(s) they think have best gone above and beyond in their work. Votes for finalists will be judged on the number of ‘likes’ a photo receives.

Once a winner from each state and territory has been determined they will become the super finalists. An independent judging panel will review the super finalists and determine the overall winner.

What are the prizes?

The winner from each state and territory will receive a $50 Coles Group & Myer Gift Card.

The overall winner will receive an iPad.

What are the key dates?

Nominations close at 11:59pm 27 April 2018. State and territory finalists will be announced and their photos uploaded to Facebook on 7 May 2018. Voting for the state and territory winners closes at 11:59pm 13 May 2018. State and territory winners will be announced on 14 May 2018. An independent judging panel will determine the overall winner and the announcement will occur on 22 May 2018.
