Welcome to the 69th Australasian Reporting Awards

The ARA has encouraged honest and transparent communication
of financial and business information since 1950.

The ARA Awards are open to all organisations in Australia, New Zealand, and countries in the Asia-Pacific Region and elsewhere that prepare an annual report: companies, government departments
and agencies, and not-for-profit bodies including charities.

Organisations enter the Awards to:

  • Benchmark their reports against the world best practice criteria and their peers.
  • Receive recognition for excellence in reporting with a Gold, Silver or Bronze Award.
  • Obtain constructive feedback and expert advice to help improve their next report.
Entries for the 2019 Awards are now open. Entries will close on 7 December 2018.

Late entries may be accepted after the closing date but a late Entry Fee will apply.

Organisations with a reporting year ending on 31 December 2018 will be allowed an extension
to 31 January for submission of the Entry Form. Reports must follow ASAP. Conditions apply.
