Celebrating 50 years of business icons

Tonka Truck art work

This year marks the 50th anniversary since the inaugural export awards were first presented.

Half a century is a big milestone, and to celebrate we’ve commissioned a set of art works inspired by '50 years of the Art of Business'.

These special artworks have been created to recognise previous award winners’ contribution to this country’s export success.

These artworks celebrating iconic companies, including Tip Top and Crown Lynn, will be on display at the awards ceremony on November 24.
