There are presently no open calls for submissions.

The Export Industry Awards are organised by the Irish Exporters Association (IEA) to recognise the remarkable achievements of companies working in the export industry. Companies can enter from 12 Categories and be in with a chance to be selected as the 2019 Exporter of the Year. 

All winners will be announced at an annual Gala Dinner on Friday, 8th November at the Convention Centre in Dublin. Tickets available here.

The awards acclaim all export industry sectors recognising emerging exporters as well as established indigenous exporters of manufactured goods and services, and onward to the big hitting multinational exporters. There is an opportunity for companies trading successfully in tough European markets and for those companies trading in high growth markets. 

Entrants may range from small start-up companies to large international corporations depending on the category.

Companies are welcome to enter more than one category. The overall Exporter of the Year 2019 will be selected from the winners of the individual categories.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Companies will be required to submit a separate application in full for each category

TWO NEW CATEGORIES FOR 2019: Financial Services Partner of the Year and Private Irish Business of the Year have been added to the list of categories.
