In 2022, the Awards provide a platform for us to recognise how our industry has continued to support the customer, community, and its people, and the extraordinary achievements that have helped our industry grow and flourish.

With 17 categories to choose from, there is an opportunity for a wide range of industry sectors to be represented and recognised as the insurance ecosystem grows.

This year sees the introduction of two new categories:

  • Excellence in Environmental, Social and Governance Change — this award recognises an outstanding organisation who deals with how environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues affect its business's strategies and practices.
  • General Insurance Claims Team of the Year — this award recognises a claims team that has demonstrated excellent technical skills, strong claims results and outstanding customer service during 2021

The Awards are decided by an esteemed panel of industry Judges who read and score each submission individually and vote under the supervision of an independent auditor.

The Australian Insurance Industry Awards were founded by co-partners Asia Insurance Review (AIR) and ANZIIF.
