PLEASE NOTE: You MUST vote for candidates in all four categories. Within each category, you MUST select your first preference, second preference and third preference. You are not permitted to select the same person as your first, second and third preference – they MUST be different candidates.

Voting closes COB Friday, 5th of February 2021. Your votes count towards 50% of the votes. The remaining 50% will be determined by an esteemed judging panel. Recipients of the awards will be announced during PeakCare’s AGM and start-of-year celebrations to be held in early 2021.
