2018 Accreditation Requirements

Since 2016, all Queensland Tourism Awards (QTA) entrants were required to be certified or accredited through a recognised program. For more information please read Your Guide to a list of Accreditation and Certification Programs recognised by the Queensland Tourism Awards.

You do not need to be accredited at the time of nomination. However, you must have completed a program and be accredited by the time your written submission is due in August.

QTIC will carry out checks with the program owners to confirm your current accreditation/certification status. You will find that the majority of questions asked in the accreditation programs are similar to questions asked in your QTA submission, therefore there should be synergy while completing both processes.

PLEASE NOTE: The following categories do not require accreditation or certification to enter the Awards:

  • Major Festivals and Events
  • Festivals and Events
  • Specialised Tourism Services
  • The Richard Power Award for Destination Marketing
  • Tourism Restaurants and Catering Services 
  • Excellence in Food Tourism
  • Outstanding Contribution by a Volunteer or Volunteer Group
