How the nomination process works
Anyone from the repair industry (such as paint and equipment suppliers, insurers, customers etc) can nominate a shop for any of our award categories or you can self-nominate.
Each nomination is considered on its own merits - it doesn't matter whether it has been nominated multiple times or just once.
You will be notified by email that you have been nominated and asked to give us more details about your business and confirm which categories you wish to be considered for. This can be accessed via the entry portal.
There are two categories for the Best Bodyshop awards determined by turnover above or below the figures listed here:
NSW/VIC under $4million/over $4 million
SA/NT/WA/QLD Under $3million/over $3million
TAS under $2 million/over $2 million
Finalists will be selected by judges Sam Street and Neil Powel in each category in each state and will be announced online and in the September issue of the magazine. The finalists will be presented to a panel of industry experts who will choose the state and national winners.
There is also a Best New Shop Award for a collision repair business which has been built or extensively renovated within the last 18 months.
Finalists will be selected by judges Sam Street and Neil Powell in the best shop category and will be announced online and in the September issue of the magazine. The finalists will be presented to a panel of industry experts who will choose the national winners and the winners of all of the best practice and individual awards from information provided by them on the awards portal.
