The Space Connect Australian Space Awards has been created to showcase the nation’s best and brightest space businesses and professionals.

Recognising the leading individuals and businesses driving the development of Australia’s space economy, the Australian Space Awards universally acknowledges all space industry stakeholders — from the major listed organisations and corporates servicing Australia’s space economy to SMEs, start-ups, academic institutions and associations.

The awards are open to all businesses operating in Australia supporting the space industry, including telecommunications, satellite, energy, mining and transport sectors as well as the defence, agriculture, disaster and water management industries.

Winning a Space Award will be a desirable accolade for both individuals and businesses seeking to forge their role in the space industry.

Winners will be announced at a 5-star gala dinner in Sydney, and you’re invited to attend! Be a part of this ground-breaking initiative and put your peers, colleagues or yourself forward for these coveted accolades.



Why Enter

Returning in 2021 after the success of the inaugural wards last year, this initiative will showcase the nation’s best and brightest space businesses and professionals.

For organisations, securing an Australian Space Award will set you apart when attracting and retaining the best talent, while supporting your businesses growth. For individuals, recognition will underpin career advancement.

With a judging panel including senior space industry and government leaders, academics, business executives, entrepreneurs and innovators, the Australian Space Awards is peer-reviewed recognition of your capabilities in space and passion for driving the industry forward.

With our domestic space industry expected to triple by 2030 to a value of between $10 billion and $12 billion, an Australian Space Award reaffirms the role of your organisation, or you personally, in growing our domestic industry as well as projecting Australia’s space capabilities globally.





The Australian Space Awards is an initiative of Space Connect, a marketplace and information platform for the space economy.

Part of Momentum Media’s suite of brands, Space Connect is the first dedicated market intelligence, media and information platform for Australia’s space community, and our aim is to help drive the growth of our domestic industry as well as project Australia’s space capabilities globally. We’re the central hub for information, insights and interpretation on the key factors shaping the development of Australia’s space industry.

Space Connect is also the first platform to connect space professionals with jobs, underpin space careers, reveal business opportunities, support the space start-up sector and highlight opportunities for funding.

The platform serves as the authoritative marketplace to connect ideas, research and innovation with opportunities for space commercialisation.
