Small business owners, entrepreneurs and creators take note – Squarespace is launching the Make It Awards contest in Australia for the very first time. Inspired by Squarespace’s Founder and CEO, Anthony Casalena, who in 2003 received a $30,000 investment to start the business that went on to become a global phenomenon, the awards aim to uplift fellow entrepreneurs and give back to the community.

Squarespace is offering emerging Australian businesses, entrepreneurs and creators the chance to secure one of three $30,000 grants to help take their business to the next level. The winners will also receive a one-year Squarespace website subscription and a one-year Unfold Pro subscription to help bring their business dreams to life.

But you don’t just have to be the business owner to enter – if you know someone who has a business and deserves to be recognised, you can nominate them yourself.

The judging panel features a range of creatives including Chef Julia Busuttil Nishimura, Co-Founder of Young Henrys Dan Hampton and headed up by Keep It Cleaner founder Steph Claire Smith. Submissions are open until June 3.
