Master Builders' National Awards are divided into a number of categories.

Nominations for the housing and commercial/industrial categories are submitted through State and Territory Master Builders associations which have their own awards processes. The State and Territory Award winners in their nominated categories (some categories are combined) become finalists for the National Awards and are judged accordingly.

The National Export Awards are sponsored by the Australian Made Campaign and recognise the outstanding export performance of members and others in the Australian building and construction industry in the export market.
