We need to encourage as many youngsters as possible to feel valued and enter the industry. This year we're asking you to nominate a promising youngster who is 21 years old or under (on 31 May) who works in your shop. We'll be highlighting the nominees online as we receive nominations so that each one will have a moment in the spotlight.

Simply nominate the young achiever and we will send you a link to a Survey Monkey form so that you can tell us why you think they should win. What we're looking for:

  • Must work in a bodyshop but doesn't have to be on the tools (could be in parts, detailing, admin etc)
  • Have a love of learning
  • The right attitude
  • Strong work ethic
  • Is a team player

What do they win?

They will be flown (where appropriate) to the glittering awards presentation dinner at Melbourne Arts Centre on 11 October where they will be presented with a trophy. They will also have a profile in Paint & Panel magazine.

You can nominate your star youngster here. Nominations close on 21 May. If you would like us to feature your nominee in our newsletter please send an email with the subject line Young Achiever to
