Applications are open to:

- activity conducted in Australia or where the primary applicant is an Australian citizen.
You can nominate yourself or be nominated by someone else.
Applications are not open to employees of NMI and their immediate family members. Applicants should be willing to take part in the award event, either live or by pre-recorded video.
Measurement-related achievements can be in any scientific or technical field, as long as the measurement of something tangible is central to the achievement. Examples could include:
- designing a new measurement method
- improving our understanding of measurement science
- applying measurements in a new way to address an industry challenge or societal concern.
Applications are now open and will close 5pm AEST on Monday 31 July 2023.
