Australian Mortgage Awards update

Following another strong response from the industry to this year’s call for entries, the wait is on to find out this year’s finalists

Australian Mortgage Awards update
The Australian Mortgage Awards is firmly established on the industry calendar and year after year, the top-performing individuals and businesses enter to vie for one of the prestigious trophies.

This year was no different with another standout response from the industry across all categories. Since online nominations closed a few weeks ago, research has been underway to determine this year’s list of finalists. 

Key Media managing director for APAC Justin Kennedy commented on the calibre of nominees.

“Looking at the nominations for this year, it’s fantastic to see a lot of new names alongside recognised high performers. The AMAs continue to evolve and grow with the industry, and we are seeing more and more individuals and businesses nominate year-on-year in the hope of being recognised as the best in Australia,” he said. 

“The calibre of nominees and the sheer quantity of entrants has made the 2017 research process extremely exciting for the team, and we look forward to announcing the finalists in the coming weeks.”

Marking 16 years in 2017, this year’s AMAs will once again be sponsored by long-time event partner Westpac. Tony MacRae, General Manager, Third Party Distribution described the event as “a wonderful opportunity for the industry to celebrate service excellence”.

“Westpac is excited to be the official event partner for the Australian Mortgage Awards for the 9th year running,” he said. “With 200 years’ experience, we recognise the importance of acknowledging those who have consistently delivered great outcomes for all Australians.”

Finalists will be announced in issue 17.10 of MPA magazine and online on Wednesday 13 September. For more information about the event visit
