Register your interest below for the 2021 Zanda McDonald Award.
Applications for the 2021 Award will be open to individuals 21- 35 years or younger (as at 31 August 2020) who live and work in the agribusiness sector in either Australia or NZ. Applications open between 1 - 31 August 2020.

We'll be in touch mid July 2020 to let you know HOW to apply. Meanwhile, here are a few pointers:-

All applicants are required to complete an application form, to be submitted online between the application dates only. Your application will include:

  • a short written 80 word bio, including an explanation of what you do, your proudest achievement and any interests/hobbies

  • a 1 minute video clip, that includes your name, role/job, a brief explanation of what you do, an outline of where your passion for your industry lies, and how you’re making your mark. The video clip doesn’t have to be complicated – a simple clip is acceptable, and absolutely no longer than 1 minute. You will be judged on the content only, and a submission from your phone is perfectly acceptable. -    

  • a 250-word submission, stating how you would benefit from a tailored mentoring package, where you would like to be in your career in five years, and how you would be a fitting ambassador for this award

  • up to two supporting documents, and we highly recommend one of these documents is your CV/resume.


If appropriate, your application form will need to be signed by your employer, so make sure you check with them first, as the winner of the Award will require some time away from work.
