Club size doesn’t matter, our application and judging process gives everyone a chance to win amongst clubs of a similar calibre to theirs!
This year clubs are able to choose between submitting the forms online, or downloading the PDF forms and emailing/faxing them to us.
The online forms can be saved & edited as many times as you like up until the closing date, with a copy of your draft nomination emailed to you for safe keeping every time you hit 'Submit/Save'. At the time of closing (5pm on April 14, 2017), the latest online form that you submitted will count as your FINAL submission. Some forms do require you to email through attachments - please ensure this is complete prior to above deadline too. We recommend using any internet browser except Internet Explorer to complete the forms.
The forms are also available in PDF format for those who prefer to download and print the forms. Once ready to submit, send your forms to Clubs WA with the required attachments (Closing date is 5pm Friday 14 April 2017). On each of the PDF forms there are details on where and how to send the form to Clubs WA.
