The Board of Trustees and Organizing Committee of the ANZ Fiji Excellence in Tourism Awards are pleased to announce the short list of Business & Industry Category finalists for the 19th ANZ Fiji Excellence in Tourism Awards Season. The 2015 Awards season has again received impressive applications for all categories, and following on from the 2014 precedent, where initial scoring has been very close, some categories have more than three applicants short-listed for the next round of judging. The continuation of this approach again ensures the Awards assessments are as thorough, fair and transparent and as logistically possible.
The newly introduced Individual Categories that includes, Fiji Tourism Pride, Emerging Tourism Leader and Tourism Leader have been submitted to a separate panel of industry leaders and experts headed by an independent chairperson with broader business focus for judging, this short-list will be announced in due course.
The Trustees are pleased to welcome some first-time ANZ Awards’ entrants to the shortlist, as well as previous years’ winners and entrants, and confirm the following nominees will now go through the next stages of judging:
The ANZ Fiji Excellence in Tourism Awards Trustees and Organising Committee wish the shortlisted finalists every
success and thanks all applicants who took time to prepare and enter their quality submissions.
“It was very pleasing to note the quality applications submitted from the different categories and judging of shortlisted applicants has already commenced”, said Olivia Mavoa, Trustee and Chair of the Fiji Excellence in Tourism Awards Organising Committee.
