2020 Outstanding Leadership Awards Terms & Conditions of Entry
We’re delighted you want to participate in the 2020 Outstanding Leadership Awards.
This document is our ‘terms and conditions’, and if you want to participate in the awards program, you’ll need to adhere to a few things that we’ve outlined for you below.
As with any fair competition, if you don’t comply with these terms, we have the right to disqualify you or declare your entry ineligible, so it’s important to take note of these terms.
Our privacy statement will apply for your involvement in the Awards. You’ll find a load of information about privacy at Leadership HQ, and our privacy statement here at www.outstandingleadershipawards.com.au. As part of your participation we collect all kinds of information relating to you and your organisation, including your responses to the entry forms which are then used to generate content as well as referral checks and interviews. We may share this information with our related entities, business partners, Sponsors or other third-party service providers engaged to help us with the Awards, and may continue to do so, even after you have participated in the Awards. By participating you consent those with access to your information to use it to administer the Awards, send you marketing, invite you to be part of our initiatives including case studies, surveys and to improve any products and services of ours, our related entities and our Sponsors.
If you would like to access or correct the personal information that we hold about you, or wish to withdraw your consent to receive Awards material call the Leadership HQ Awards Team on 1800 719 665. One last thing – any reference to ‘you’ or ‘your’ includes you in your personal capacity, as a representative of the business, as well as the business being entered into the Awards.
The LeadershipHQ Outstanding Leadership Awards acknowledge the impact of Australia & New Zealand’s best leaders; therefore, leaders must be Australian or New Zealand citizens and working in an Australian or New Zealand based business.

Future and student leaders must be able to demonstrate their leadership efforts over the last 12 months.
Nominees must belong to a properly registered Australian or New Zealand business, not for profit or company except for Student Leaders. This includes sole traders.
The Judges look for the qualities that all truly outstanding leaders behold:
A positive contribution and impact to the community and their business through their work
A positive contribution to building high performing teams and supporting colleagues as a leader – enhancement of the organisation’s culture
Transformational leadership through continuous improvement and innovation
Demonstration of being courageous and inclusive as a leader
Supporting other leaders and people in the sector and making a difference
The Judges consider every detail and each answer is scored out of ten for how well it addresses the criteria
Entries must be submitted 5pm AEDT by 14th of March 2020. You must complete the form and anything you include in your entry form must be true and correct.
What we expect from you
You’ll need to make sure that anyone important to your organisation like business owners, founders or officers are available to attend Award events and associated activities. There’ll be the excitement of the State and National workshops and Gala dinners, as well as the more serious requirements like judging days and site inspections. Your premises must be available when necessary.
We also want you to help us or our Sponsors publicise the Awards. When attending any events relating to the Awards, if requested, you or your representative(s) must verbally endorse us or the relevant sponsor for the event. If you’re a finalist or a winner we’ll need the business owners, officers or founders to be available for promotional appearances for us or our Sponsors. We’ll give you at least seven calendar days’ notice of the time, date and location each time you’re required. We’ll also pay any reasonable travel and accommodation expenses of your representative for these appearances.
You agree that we may use your logo, business identity, details about your business or personal identity in any way in any material which promotes the Awards or the products or services of us or our Sponsors. You agree to allow us and the Sponsors to contact you to provide comments about the Awards and to take photos or video footage of you, your business and your representative, and use any of the material collected as part of your participation. If we do use any of the materials listed above, you grant us a royalty free, perpetual and irrevocable licence to use the materials for promotional purposes.
All intellectual property rights related to the Awards, including the information and data we collect, belong to us or our Sponsors. Don’t worry – you’ll still own any intellectual property rights you already owned prior to entering the Awards. You also assign, including by way of a present assignment, and assignment of all rights that may arise in the future, all intellectual property rights related to any and all materials that arise in relation to your participation in the Awards.

We reserve the right, at any time, and in our sole discretion to (a) request entrants to provide proof of identity and/or proof of valid entry (b) disqualify any entrant who we have reason to believe has breached any of these conditions or engaged in any unlawful or other improper conduct or any conduct calculated to jeopardise the fair and proper conduct of the promotion.

If for any reason, we are not able to conduct the promotion as planned, including due to tampering, unauthorised intervention, fraud, any technical difficulties or any other causes beyond our control, which corrupt or affect the administration, security, fairness, integrity or proper conduct of this promotion, we reserve the right in our sole discretion to take any action that may be available.
We exclude all warranties in relation to the quality, suitability or merchantability of a prize, except those that cannot be excluded by law. To the fullest extent permitted by law, any liability of the Promoter or its employees or agents for breach of any rights a consumer may have which are unable to be excluded under Australian & New Zealand Law, is limited to the payment of the costs of having the prize supplied again.
To the extent permitted by law, we are not liable for any loss (including indirect and consequential loss) or damage or personal injury suffered or sustained in connection with the promotion including the supply of goods or services by any person to the prize winners, and where applicable to any persons accompanying the prize winners. We accept no responsibility for any tax liabilities that may arise from winning the prize.
The small print
To the extent permitted by law, we will not be liable for any loss or damage or personal injury suffered or sustained in connection with the Awards. You will indemnify us and our officers, employees or agents against any loss or liability from any claim or action that arises as a result of a breach of these terms by you, or your use of the materials or information supplied by you under these Terms. You irrevocably and unconditionally consent to all acts being done that would otherwise breach your Moral Rights.
If we are unable to provide a winner with a prize (or part of a prize), we will supply an alternative prize (or part of a prize) of similar monetary value. Prizes are not transferable or exchangeable and are not redeemable for cash. If a prize has not been claimed it will be distributed at our absolute discretion.
