The 2010 Living Smart Glossies Awards If you are promoting sustainability in the way you work or live on the Sunshine Coast, then the 2010 Glossies Awards are for you. The Sunshine Coast Council's Living Smart "Glossies" Awards are an opportunity to celebrate our communities' achievements in sustainable building design, land use, sustainable transport and environmentally friendly business.

The Glossies Awards were run for more than four years as a Noosa Council event, and last year's Awards marked the amalgamated Sunshine Coast Council's inaugural Living Smart Awards. Every business, community group and individual who enters these awards has already achieved something worthy of recognition---you've become an ambassador for the environment and are helping create a sustainable lifestyle on the Sunshine Coast.

It is therefore fitting that the Glossies Awards are named after the iconic Glossy Black Cockatoo, which is a vulnerable local bird species. Through encouraging sustainable living on the Sunshine Coast, we hope to contribute to the long-term survival of this and many other iconic local species. Our hope is that your fellow residents of the Sunshine Coast will be inspired by the homes and business premises that you've designed or built, the gardens you've tended, the businesses you've created and the alternate transport options you've embraced.

This year we have made some changes to the awards, including separate sub-categories for industry and residents/community groups, improved nomination process, the addition of a new category and greater benefits for those who are named as finalists and winners. This year's event is also going to be bigger, better and more glossy! Who should enter We are looking for individuals, businesses and groups who are making a significant contribution to sustainable living and business on the Sunshine Coast. This includes home-owners, builders, designers, architects, community groups, landscapers and business owners.

You can even nominate on behalf of someone else, so long as they agree to the nomination. Award categories There are six Award categories:

The Golden Glossy---Excellence in Sustainable Design Award
