New South Wales and Western Australia lead the number of finalists with seven, followed by Victoria with six. South Australia has three, and Queensland, Tasmania and the ACT one each.

The judges, chaired by businessman James Strong, the Chairman of the Australia Business Arts Foundation, agree that both the quality and quantity of the nominations received ¡V a total of 122 across all categories ¡V were significantly higher than in previous years.

James Strong says it’s clear that business and the arts are embracing partnerships with a clear view of their strategic advantage, and developing exciting opportunities.

Strong says that although the awards are looking for stand out partnerships, it is worth remembering that every entrant is a sponsorship of great benefit to the organisations involved.
