If you wish to enter a category for more than one business site, that business site must have its own unique VACC member number, be current and financial. The Primary membership holder of that business must register and apply separately for an award category through the VIA Applications portal as per these terms and conditions.

VACC MEMBERSHIP, INDUSTRY DIVISIONS & ACCREDITATION REQUIREMENTS

Only financial VACC members can apply for the VACC Industry Awards. Note that many of the award categories are divisional awards that require VACC members to have obtained official Accreditation. To enter a specific award category, the entrant must be recorded within the VACC member database as being within the relevant Industry Division. Refer to this list for explanation of each Industry Division and Accreditation.

If you do not know your accreditation status, or would like to commence the accreditation process, contact VACC Membership on 1300 013 341 or membership@vacc.com.au before 30 November 2018 to ensure that the process is completed by closing date of award entries, Friday 29 March 2019.

If a member has been identified by the VACC as not being associated to a specific Industry Division and/or have obtained Accreditation within an Industry Division, entrants may apply for the following award category within the General Division (GD):

–  Best General Division Business (Small Business)
–  Best General Division Business (Large Business)

BUSINESS SIZE CLASSIFICATION

Each award category has been classified by business size. Your business size, according to your official membership details, will be cross-checked with your application to ensure the correct award category classification has been selected.

When you register you need to acknowledge if you are either a Small or Large Business – as many Category Awards are divided into Small or Large Business classifications.

ALL CATEGORY AWARDS:
– Small Business = 6 or less FTEs – full time equivalent (employees)
– Large Business = 7 or more FTEs – full time equivalent (employees)
– Open = No business size classification

BEST NEW CAR DEALER AWARDS (Different business size classifications apply):
– Best New Car Dealer (Small Business) = 24 or less FTEs – full time equivalent (employees)
– Best New Car Dealer (Large Business) = 25 or more FTEs – full time equivalent (employees)

BUSINESS LOCATION CLASSIFICATION

Note that some Category Awards are divided into Metro or Regional areas. Please refer to this spreadsheet to determine if the location of your business falls within Metropolitan or Regional Victoria (as defined by the Victorian Government). Select the relevant award that is applicable to you.

A GUIDE TO ADDRESSING THE CRITERIA

VIA ASSIST – Guide to Addressing the Criteria

We understand the effort, emotion and time that goes into writing an Awards submission. Judges are only allowed to use the information provided in a submission, so putting effort into your entry is important. Make sure you answer all of the criteria in detail and succinctly.

A separate submission is required for each Category Award entered. Each criterion detailed under each Category Award has a brief explanation as to what elements you should address within your answers. Be careful about recycling award entries from previous years and/or across different category awards, as judging criteria and focus can vary from year to year and per category award.

Submissions to all categories must relate to activities between 1 January 2018 – 31 December 2018, and they relate to your single site business operation only. Please ensure that this is reflected in your response.

Pay attention to the weighting of each question, as this will help you to decide where to focus your efforts. Make sure that your language is concise and purposeful. It is important to address all of the criteria for the category. If you do not address a criterion, your will receive no marks for it, making it much less likely that your entry will be the winning one.

Judges can only base their decision on the information you provide in your submission, so make sure that you answer each part of each question thoroughly. Your goal is to convince the judging panel, through your submission, that your business is the best in the chosen category. If you are submitting an written entry, write it in a compelling way, and make sure that it is based on evidence. Remember, the judges have many entries to evaluate in some categories, so make yours memorable and easy to read and understand.

VACC HALL OF FAME

Finalists who have won the same category award on three (3) separate occasions will be promoted to the VACC Hall of Fame and will not be eligible for that award category until two (2) years have passed.

JUDGES, JUDGING PROCESS & AUDIT

The process for judging award submissions is taken extremely seriously by VACC. VACC Board Members and Divisional Committee Members have no role to play in this process and this is deliberately designed to ensure separation between submissions and VACC Office Bearers. Entries will be judged by a panel appointed by the VACC Executive Board. Judging has a number of levels which start with a criteria weighting score being aligned to each part of the award criteria. These criteria weighting scores can be seen in the application templates on the awards website. Actual judging is undertaken by senior VACC staff who have an expertise in the specific criteria they are judging. Each judge is provided with a pass code into the judging portal and they can only see their own judging scores. When all of the judges have completed this task the program administrator (Awards Manager) is the only person who can access the grouped up numbers and the final tally. To provide a further level of governance, VACC engage an external standards expert, Mr. Robert Stowell, who validates the judging process and reports on any discrepancies. Mr Stowell also facilitates external site audits that form part of the awards audit process, which may include up to 30 site validation audits. These site audits will be performed throughout the period from Monday, 3 December 2018 – Friday, 3 May 2019.  All nominated businesses may be contacted and requested to clearly demonstrate their business operations and achievements. The only exception to the rules of judging is in the Best Restoration Project category and in this case an external subject matter expert and judging process is used.

The judges’ decision is final. No correspondence will be entered into by any member of the judging panel, VACC employees, VACC Executive Board and/or entrant. By applying for an award, the entrant agrees to abide by the final decision of the judges and agrees not to bring a claim against any judge, or the Victorian Automobile Chamber of Commerce in relation to feedback on their submission.

RIGHT NOT TO AWARD A CATEGORY

The VACC Industry Awards celebrate excellence. The judging panel have the right not to award a category if they do not believe that the submissions meet this standard. In this event, entrants will be notified that the category will not be awarded. Should there be less than two entries in a category, the judging panel reserves the right to not award a recipient for that category.

AMALGAMATION OF AN AWARD CATEGORY

If there are a low number of applications within a specific award category, the judging panel have the right to amalgamate two award categories of the same type, but of different business sized and/or different business site location classifications, and make it an Open award. Thus having the applicants be judged against each other no matter the business size and/or location classifications. In this event, entrants will be notified that the category is being amalgamated and they can choose to either continue in the process or withdraw their submission.

NOTIFICATION OF FINALISTS

All finalists will be notified in writing from Monday, 6 May 2019. Announcement of finalists will be made in a media release as well as via communications from VACC. Please ensure that you carefully complete your registration details within the 2019 VIA online portal correctly to ensure that we can cross-check your submission with your VACC member profile and include the correct business name in these announcements.
