The RNA’s prestigious Royal Queensland Awards (RQA) – formerly the Royal Queensland Food & Wine Show - is a celebration of the nation’s finest produce and producers and is dedicated to unearthing Australia’s top food, beer and wine products year after year.  

Since 2009, the RQA has nurtured innovation and excellence in the Queensland and Australian food and beverage sectors by providing a comprehensive awards program which helps producers benchmark and promote their products.  

There are six competition sections - Cheese and Dairy; Ice Cream, Gelato and Sorbet; Branded Beef; Branded Lamb; the Royal Queensland Wine Awards (RQWA); and the Royal Queensland Beer Awards (RQBA).

The RQA are your opportunity to celebrate your product and business’s innovation, sustainability and excellence, reach new markets and maximise opportunities. 

The RNA’s mission, since 1875, is to celebrate and champion the essential role agricultural plays in our everyday lives. We do this by showcasing and rewarding those judged the finest in their fields through our revered RQA competitions and the iconic and beloved Royal Queensland Show.  

For 145 years, we have given producers a platform to shine, be judged against their peers and get great consumer market exposure. From the food we eat, to the clothes we wear everything starts with our farmers and what better way to pay tribute to our farmers than these industry and consumer facing competitions.
