A number of Young Tall Poppies are selected in each state and territory, and from amongst them a Young Tall Poppy of the Year.
A cash prize is awarded to the Tall Poppy of the Year in each state.
There is no cap on the number of winners – you should refer to past years for a guide.
The results of selection are based on a nationally consistent benchmark for the award.
All Tall Poppies receive a certificate and an award alongside public/peer recognition at an awards ceremony.
