Undergraduate accounting students, including honours students, can enter the competition. Each format offers a prize of $1500. The competition, held annually since 1995, aims to promote the importance of professional ethics in accounting and to stimulate a wider debate about ethical issues. It also challenges you to analyse potential ethical issues confronted in the accounting field. This is the first year that the video entry format has been introduced.
