Most definitely.

A Conflict of Interest process is in place throughout judging to keep the Tasmanian Volunteering Awards fair and equitable.

There is no limit, however each nomination must be made on a separate form.

Individuals and groups/programs can be nominated across multiple categories, however, these nominations will be forwarded to the individual/group/program to decide which nomination they would like to proceed with and in which category.

No individual or group/program can be judged in more than one category. For their nomination, they will receive a certificate of appreciation for the category they are nominated within.

If a volunteer group or program earns money for products sold, services performed or fundraising activities, then this income must be banked by a not-for-profit organisation, a government organisation (e.g. a local Council) or donated to a charitable cause, including, but not limited to, the continuation of the volunteering program. Third-party evidence may be requested for volunteer programs or groups that get through to the final round.
