2020 Australia Post ORIAS

The Australia Post Online Retail Industry Awards is the event that celebrates all that is truly good and inspiring within an industry that is one we are all so passionate about. This year, the celebration you know and love us for is going to look a little different. 

A safe, socially distanced party is no way to party – so while the party gets put on ice until 2021 when we can come back with a bang, we wanted to push forward with still delivering the real value of the Australia Post ORIAS. 

In 2020, the Australia Post ORIAS will return in a brand new virtual format, broadcasting live and free, 5:00pm-6:00pm (AEDT), Thursday 26 November 2020 as we connect the industry virtually for the very first time to formally recognise friends and colleagues who slugged it through a really tough time, and demonstrated award winning displays of innovation to take a piece back from “the year that was”. 

So, want to know who our finalists and winners for 2020 are?

Australia Post Unsung Hero Awards

This year the Australia Post Unsung Hero Award will be presented as two opportunities to be recognised for outstanding performance.
