What is the Best TSANZ Training Video Award?

The selection panel, comprised of members of the Education and Training Subcommittee (ETS), drawing on subject matter experts, will select a short list of videos to be presented at the ASM. The winning Video will be announced at the ASM.

All entries may be considered for upload onto to the TSANZ website as training resources for members. The winning video will be awarded a $2,000 prize sponsored by the TSANZ Insurance Brokers, Omnisure

Who can apply?

Every TSANZ member of any discipline or member type is invited to apply.

What happens if my video is selected?
The TSANZ ETS will seek subject matter expertise to assist in adjudicating. The ETS will select the most effective Videos based on the following criteria

  • How effectively were learning outcomes articulated and achieved
  • How engaging is the Video (static PowerPoints will receive lower scores than dynamic productions)
  • Was the timeframe of up to 15 minutes achieved
  • Is the material presented accurate and evidence based


All entries may be considered for upload onto the TSANZ website as ongoing training resources for members and the producers will receive a framed certificate from TSANZ.
