“If you have a product, service, approach or initiative that can be described as innovative, the Northern Inland Innovation Awards is a specialised award program focussing on just that,” said Mr Stewart. “The deadline for entries is just under a month away, so get cracking."


The region-wide awards program is in its 9th year and organisers are proud of the positive stories of outstanding quiet achievers that have been unearthed and publicised to date. “I encourage everyone to get onto the awards website (www.niia.com.au) and check out the videos we have produced of past category winners and finalists, like last year’s Innovation of the Year winner, Lively Linseed of Mullaley.”
Businesses, public and not-for-profit organisations, together with the 12 local councils of the Northern Inland region are being urged to submit entries for the 9th annual (RDANI) Innovation Awards. Entries close on Monday 3rd October, 2016.


“The Department of Industry, Innovation and Science, Prime Super, the University of New England, Telstra Store Inverell and Inverell Shire Council are supporting these awards in 2016 and I think that is recognition of how important they are.”


“Prime Super is proud to be involved with these awards. I was one of four judges last year and it was great to see such a wide range of entries from people who are justifiably proud of what they have been doing. A little effort to tell your story and make others proud with you can be so worthwhile, particularly in a regional setting,” Prime Super Regional Manager Annette Mackay said.


The NIIA Categories are:

  • Agriculture / Horticulture and associated services;
  • Health, Aged Care and Disability Services;
  • Retail, Tourism & Leisure;
  • Professional and Government services;
  • Manufacturing and Engineering;
  • Research and Education.

 

Each year the gala Northern Inland Innovation Awards dinner and presentation evening is held in a different Local Government Area within the region. In 2016, these regional Awards will be presented at the Inverell RSM Club on Friday, 18 November. Enter the awards or book for the dinner via the website: www.niia.com.au.
