The Australian and New Zealand Institute of Insurance and Finance (ANZIIF) and Asia Insurance Review have announced that submissions for the Australian Insurance Industry Awards are now open.

The Awards, now in their 15th year, provide an opportunity for industry professionals to celebrate and recognise individual and company excellence and encourage reflection on the industry’s successes while also looking to the future.

“Each year, we come together to award and acknowledge those in the industry demonstrating a high level of excellence. The Awards provide us the opportunity to celebrate the ways in which we are exceeding expectations and to further cement the level of excellence we should each aspire to achieve for ourselves, and our customers,” said Ms Prue Willsford, ANZIIF CEO .

Asia Insurance Review Editor-in-Chief, Sivam Subramanian said: ‘With all the challenges buffeting the industry, I look forward to seeing the entries for this year. I am sure the Australian market is on the cutting edge in the disruptive digital era, ahead of the rest of the pack globally.”

After receiving a record number of submissions for the 2017 Awards, and a record number of attendees, the 2018 Awards will be the biggest and best awards to date with a new venue, Luna Park in Sydney, chosen to accommodate the growing audience.
