Judging process for the 2024 Australian Insurance Industry Awards

An industry panel evaluates each submission, with voting overseen by an independent auditor.

Judges sign confidentiality agreements and recuse themselves if conflicts of interest arise. An external auditor ensures the integrity and confidentiality of the judging process.

ANZIIF, which recently bolstered its Southeast Asia ties through partnerships and webinars, thanked the judges for their dedication in reviewing this year’s entries and acknowledged the continued support from sponsors.

“Together, let’s celebrate the extraordinary commitment and passion that enables our industry to thrive – from outstanding customer outcomes and innovative solutions, to future focused people development and inspiring commitment to ESG,” said ANZIIF CEO Katrina Shanks.

The awards ceremony will take place at The Star in Sydney on Aug. 22, featuring 14 categories encompassing various segments and roles within the insurance industry.
