Annual Cotton Awards now even easier to enter
Mar '11
Celebrating those talented and dedicated people who have helped grow Australia's cotton industry, is the theme behind the annual Cotton Industry Awards launched at Toobeah in Queensland today.

Cotton Australia CEO Adam Kay, called on the growers, researchers, innovators and young achievers from across cotton country to celebrate their contribution to an industry which is now in the resurgence after a decade of drought.

“The thing that makes the cotton awards different, is that it really isn't a contest, it's not about finding who is best or cleverest, it is simply a way of recognising those people in our industry who continue to give their all, day after day,” he said.

Speaking at the annual Cotton Grower of the Year farm walk, held on the property of last year's winners, John Norman and Tony Taylor, 'Kalanga', Mr Kay said the application process for this year's awards has been simplified to make it easier to enter or to nominate someone worthy of industry recognition.

“For the service to industry and grower categories you only need to put forward a name and some basic details. Anyone can enter and you can nominate yourself or someone else. A phone interview will help shortlist the finalists.”

“This low paperwork application system will make it easier to enter and easier to find those people working in the Australian cotton industry who are just plain good at what they do. We'd also love to see all the winners of the local crop competitions entered into these national awards,” the Cotton Australia CEO said.

This year the Cotton Award presentation night is going regional and will be held at the Crossing Theatre in Narrabri on Wednesday 10th August 2011 as part of the Cotton Collective week. Tickets for this event will go on sale mid-June.
