Celebrating excellence and innovation in security

Companies and individuals in the Australian security industry will be recognised for their hard work, excellence and innovation on a national and international stage, at the 2017 #SecurityAwards.

The Australian Security Industry Awards for Excellence have been an initiative of the Australian Security Industry Association Limited (ASIAL) for 22 years.

In 2015, ASIAL partnered with the World Excellence Awards to bring the global OSPAs program to Australia.

For the third time they will share a prestigious Awards Ceremony & Dinner on 19 October 2017 in the River Room, Crown Melbourne.


Nominations will open 1 March 2017 and close 1 September 2017.

Nominees may nominate themselves or others more than once in multiple categories. A non-refundable nominations fee of $95 (including GST) is payable when you submit your nomination.

Once received entries will be shortlisted by desk audit to ensure that they adhere to criteria set out for each award category. The shortlisted nominations will then be assessed by an independent panel of judges (soon to be announced) chaired by an ASIAL representative who does not vote in selecting a winner.

The judges are responsible for awarding the winners and finalists of each category. Their decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into. The award organisers also reserve the right to not award a category if circumstances deem it necessary.

Finalists will be notified of the finalist status by email and phone. Winners will not be announced until the Awards Ceremony & Dinner.

Please note that details of your nominations are kept confidential. ASIAL staff processing the nominations and members of the judging panel are required to sign a Deed of Confidentiality. The content of your nomination is never shared publicly.
