Celebrating Canberra Businesses: Your Award and News Source

Canberra Area News & Awards Hub

Transitioning from our former identity as the Canberra Area Theatre Awards, we have expanded our horizons to celebrate not just the artistic realm, but the diverse landscape of businesses in Canberra and the surrounding regions. Since our inception in 1994 as the CAT Awards, we have sought to recognise outstanding contributions to the cultural and artistic tapestry of Australia. As the Canberra Area News & Awards Hub, we are committed to extending this legacy of recognition to the incredible businesses that help Canberra thrive.
