Awards for Excellence

The Institute’s Awards for Excellence is one of Queensland’s most respected and highly regarded industry Awards programs.

Applications are now open, with the winners announced at the awards ceremony in November.


Created by the development industry

Launched in 1994, the Awards were created by the development industry as a vehicle to recognise excellence and innovation within our State.

Year after year we receive feedback from the industry that receiving an Award is valued recognition for their work as well as an honour given the winners are chosen by their peers.

The program is unapologetically rigorous, taking eight months from launch through to the completion of judging. We take the role of receiving entries very seriously. Since the inception of the Awards, our judges have visited every site in person and reviewed the accompanying written submission. This rigorous process recognises the efforts of entrants as well as ensures a thorough assessment of the field.

Our judges are experienced industry leaders

They bring tremendous credibility to our awards program.

Their depth of experience and knowledge ensures the process is both independent and robust. Over two weeks our panels travel the length and breadth of Queensland, seeking out the best of the best.

An Institute Award is a true sign of excellence, quality, and industry best practice.
