Exporters can enter more than one category to maximise their chance of success, but can only win one category. The overall winner of the 2019 Tasmanian Export Awards is chosen from one of the category winners.

All category winners go on to compete in the national finals of the Australian Export Awards to be held in early December in Canberra. There are two Tasmanian specific categories this year; Tasmanian Women in Export, and, Young Exporter.
