Finalists for the 2023 Australian Export Awards revealed

  • Media release

Congratulations to the 86 businesses who will compete as national finalists at the 2023 Australian Export Awards.

These finalists represent a diverse range of sectors and industries and have made significant contribution to our national economy, creating jobs and opportunities in our cities, regions, and rural areas.

This year’s 86 national finalists have collectively employed over 22,500 Australians and generated over $12 billion in export earnings during the last financial year.

Just over half of the finalists are small businesses with an annual turnover of less than $10 million.

Since 1963, the Australian Export Awards have celebrated the achievements and resilience of Australian businesses exporting home-grown innovation to the world.

I look forward to celebrating the 13 award category winners and announcing the Australian Exporter of the Year at the 61st Australian Export Awards National Ceremony on 30 November.

The Awards program is presented by the Australian Trade and Investment Commission, in collaboration with state and territory partners.
