Each winner receives a video vignette of their innovation which will be broadcast on Southern Cross News (value $4,500) plus a trophy, certificate and laurels.

Nominations for the 2016 Innovative Tasmania Awards are now open here. It is free to enter, and nominations close on Sunday 23 July, 2017.

Winners are chosen by crowd-sourcing voting open to all Tasmanians once nominations close. Prizes will be awarded at a prestigious event in Hobart on Wednesday 4th October, 2017.
