Entrant Workshops

Considering entering the 2015 RACV Victorian Tourism Awards?

Come along to a FREE workshop hosted by the Victoria Tourism Industry Council (VTIC). You will gain insight into the benefits of entering and learn all you need to know to prepare a successful submission. This year, the submission deadline has been extended to 4pm Monday 24 August 2015!

You will hear what judges look for in each question and it’s a great opportunity to chat with other entrants about their experience entering the awards previously.

If you entered the tourism awards in 2014 or previously, it’s important you attend this workshop to understand what changes have been implemented in 2015 to the categories and criteria.
