The India Australia Business and Community Awards celebrate the Australia-India relationship and honour entrepreneurship and community leadership.
The awards have run annually since 2013, and raise awareness of Indians in Australia and Australians in India, in a way that encourages further growth in relations between the two countries.
Nearly 300 entries across the 12 categories of the awards were received this year. Finalists were celebrated at a reception attended by His Excellency Dr A M Gondane, High Commissioner of India to Australia, at the Powerhouse Museum on 16 August.
Winners of the India Australia Business and Community Awards will be announced on 11 October at a gala event in Brisbane, Queensland.
