The Awards will be judged based on the merit of each application, not as a competition between applicants. Small projects are encouraged to apply, as the merit of their project will be assessed taking the size and resources of the company or organisation into consideration.
Applications will be preliminarily judged against the eligibility criteria for each Award.
The judging panel will further discuss criteria assessments and make recommendations on the winning applicants to the Premier after assessing the written applications. The Premier's decision is final.
The judging panel
A judging panel will be convened for each of the three sectors (resources, METS and energy), comprising representatives from the government and industry sectors.The judging panel members will be chosen to bring substantial range and depth of experience to the Premier's Awards in Energy and Mining. Members will be drawn from business, industry, aboriginal affairs, environmental management, engagement, social services and government.
The 2019 judging panel members will be announced in the coming months.
