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:
Wednesday, 19 June 2019 – Palladium at Crown, Melbourne
ARA invites all Awards entrants and anyone those interested in annual reports to join in the celebration of excellence in reporting at the 2019 Awards Presentation Dinner.
Thursday, 20 June 2019 – Crown Promenade, Melbourne
Entrants and anyone interested in reporting is invited to attend the ARA Seminar to hear presentations on the key issues that should be addressed and discussions about practical ‘how to’ aspects of producing an effective annual report. The speakers will include people who have many years of experience in producing award-winning reports or in assessing reports as an expert ARA adjudicator.
2019 Awards Seminar Program
The Australasian Reporting Awards offers entrants a unique educational opportunity to meet with and receive feedback on their annual report from an ARA Adjudicator for a modest fee. Entrants can learn what has been done well and what hasn’t, and receive valuable constructive advice on how to make improvements. Entrants should plan to have a Feedback Session to get the most from entering the 2019 Awards.
Feedback Sessions may be held in person or by teleconference. They may be held by arrangement before the Awards Dinner (from 1 May), during the Annual Seminar on Reporting in Melbourne on 20 June, or after the Seminar.
