IABCA annually engages with an independent jury and leaders from across both nations to determine the finalists and winners of our annual awards initiative. Operating on an annual rotational policy, this credibility based approach ensures that entrants are assessed solely on merit, and requires a collection of highly qualified leaders who are willing to invest their time towards furthering the India-Australia relationship.
