The Brother/Stationery News Reseller of the Year Awards, now in their 13th year, recognise the resellers that have performed best over the past 12 months based on a range of criteria, including sales performance, new business development, marketing strategy and development of staff.
As in previous awards, resellers are defined as independently-owned retail or commercial stationers or newsagents.
Suppliers to vote for Reseller of the Year
Suppliers to the office products industry are eligible to nominate up to six candidates across metropolitan and regional markets.
Finalists are selected based on the overall number of nominations and then judged by Stationery News against independently-weighted criteria.
The judging criteria has been refined to reflect the key performance indicators that apply to the industry's most progressive and successful businesses.
Resellers to vote for Supplier of the Year
In addition, resellers and newsagents are invited to submit nominations for the keenly-contested 'Supplier of the Year' Award, sponsored by Office Brands, Office Choice and ASA Australia.

“The awards are a highlight on the industry's calendar and, in partnership with Brother, Stationery News is committed to showcasing the industry's best performers,” she added.
