2014 Australian Cotton Industry Award Recipients Announced
October 8, 2014

More than 1,000 people gathered to celebrate the recipients of the 2014 Australian Cotton Industry Awards at a ceremony held at the Gold Coast in August. The Awards program recognises excellence and achievement in Australia’s cotton industry throughout the supply chain, from growers and ginners to product suppliers, consultants, agronomists and researchers.

Cotton Australia CEO Adam Kay says the Awards judging panels were challenged by the very high calibre of the finalists in this year’s program.

“The number of nominations received across all categories of the Awards program in 2014 was higher than previous years, which resulted in an extremely high standard amongst the finalists pool,” Mr Kay says.

“It was very hard for the judges to select recipients from amongst the finalists, all of whom have contributed enormously to our industry.”

“Every year the Australian Cotton Industry Awards celebrate not just the great work and personal commitment of the recipients and finalists, but also the commitment of everyone throughout the cotton supply chain.”
