If there are fewer than three entrants in a category, entries are still administered and judging undertaken. You still receive your results notification and achieve a Highly Recommended status (if you achieve over 80%), or a State Winner status (if you achieve over 98%). Your results will then also be entered into our Australian Specialised Services & Supplies category. A National Winner will be awarded from this category at the end of the year.
