    The countdown has begun.

    Our judges have been hard at work, sorting the cool from the crazy and the crazy from the crazy cool. From the hundreds of applications we received this year, 80 have been shortlisted for special attention.

    These 80 have been segmented into FINALISTS, HIGHLY COMMENDED and a new accolade we’re calling THUMBS UP. Category winners will be selected from FINALISTS and identified at an evening ceremony on 6 December 2012.

    Learn more about the ceremony below.

    FINALIST: You are a category FINALIST and, therefore, you are in the running to win your category(ies) and, therefore, Coolest Company of the Year. Booh-yah!

    HIGHLY COMMENDED: You are not in the running to win your category but the judges defined your organisation as truly remarkable. (What would Seth Godin say?)

    THUMBS UP: Our judges found themselves irrepressibly compelled to say, ‘Great job! Keep doing what you’re doing. You’re awesome.’ (That’s right… likely to inspire awe.)

    What is Anthill? It's a business magazine. What’s it about? It's about innovation, entrepreneurship and rapid business growth. Until Anthill was launched in September 2003, the bulk of existing business titles in Australia were mainly concerned with issues of relevance to small/micro businesses or large corporations (one or the other). Anthill was developed to bridge this gap, appealing to highly innovative and ambitious ‘fast’ growth businesses - SMEs with rapid growth potential and larger companies that realise the value of reinvention to stay ahead. It does not focus on the traditional ‘nuts and bolts’ of business development (although this is a key element of editorial content), but instead it highlights the inspiring thrills, spills, trials and tribulations of business development and rapid commercial growth. Business can and should be fun, right!
