Excellence Awards 2024

The 2024 awards submissions are open until  5pm (AEST) Friday, 31 May 2024.

Recognising excellent L&D

The AITD Excellence Awards are about setting new benchmarks for our members by recognising and sharing quality and innovation across the L&D spectrum. The awards run every year, with entries opening in the first quarter of the year and the winners being announced at an exciting event towards the end of the year.

We constantly review and update the Excellence Awards categories, making sure they inspire and illustrate the ever-evolving L&D environment.


To enter the awards, each submission must meet the following criteria:

  • at least one of the project contributors must be a current AITD member
  • the project must have been substantially designed within OR for Asia Pacific and have been completed within the last 3 years
  • where a program was designed for a third party, the user/client must give authorisation for the program to be entered in the awards.

Submission process

The submission process takes place via an online awards portal which allows you to create an entry, save it, add attachments and make amendments as required until the closing date.
