Australian Guide of the Year (GOTY) Award
Each year one of the Australian Expedition Guides is selected to be awarded the "GOTY" by the NRE Melbourne Administration Team, several of whom are also trek guides.
The criteria for selection addresses two aspects of involvement with No Roads. The award firstly recognises the recipient’s consistently high level of service in their role as a guide. Secondly it recognises their ongoing significant contribution to the promotion and development of the company.
PNG Guide of the Year (GOTY) Award
No Roads Expeditions has created a new award to recognise the services of an exceptional member of the PNG guide team over the past trekking season.
The Australian Guides vote after each expedition on who they consider should receive this award. This is a very difficult task, taking into account the high level of service that is consistently provided to our trekkers and to the Australian Guides.
All categories of the PNG guide team, Local, Lead, General, campsite, medic, masterchef and guides in Training are eligible.
The PNG guide who receives the most votes will be presented with an engraved trophy and a fully paid for trip to Australia with the PNG guide group that attends that year under the existing program, irrespective of whether he has previously visited.
