NECA SA/NT 2020 Excellence Awards Nominations

Market Your Finest Projects in this Year's Excellence Awards!

We are pleased to announce that we are now accepting entries for the 2020 NECA SA/NT Excellence Awards, to be presented at the NECA Industry Gala Dinner on Friday 11 September 2020.

We have refreshed and made changes to several of the categories this year to ensure businesses of all shapes and sizes can nominate and be rewarded! So if you have a project that you believe you have excelled at then let us know, get involved and make the most of this opportunity to showcase your business and what it can do!

The online nomination process for the Excellence Awards, introduced two years ago, makes entering a project a less time-consuming process for your company to undertake. Nominations are submitted online via our E-Awards portal, and questions have been revised and cut down substantially. 

The NECA Excellence Awards recognise the accomplishments of individual electrical and communications companies, small and large, for their work on various projects across the state. We know that our members do some outstanding work everyday, so we want you to get involved and get recognised for it!

  • Professional promotional video presented at the event and displayed on YouTube and the NECA website. Nominees are also given a copy of the video for their own marketing purposes.

  • Media releases developed and distributed to the media.
  • Winners are provided with an Excellence Awards Winners logo, which you can use in your own marketing (i.e. websites, business cards, customer letters, etc.).
