About

The world needs more dreamers. Those that see groups in their community who need a helping hand, and dream of ways to make life better for them. Sunsuper Dreams for a Better World has been running since 2011, and in 2017 we’ve made a few changes so we can all dream big and help the causes you care about to make the world a better place.

The Sunsuper Dreams for a Better World program offers a $150,000 annual grant pool. It’s shared over four rounds and there’s a Grand Final event to celebrate and recognise those who generously give their time and effort to make the world a better place.

This year, if you really want to help a cause close to your heart, dream big, because you could receive up to $50,000 in grants to help make that dream a reality.

1. Submit

If your dream is for an Australian cause and can be undertaken in the next 12 months, submit your dream today!

2. Shortlist and public vote

Each quarter, our judges will select 6 dreams to make the shortlist, and then it’s up to you to get as many votes from the Australian public as you can. So get out there and let people know what you do and how you’re making the world a better place. Be different, be creative and show our judges just how much you want to be in our top 3.

3. Finalists

The 3 dreams with the most valid votes will be the category finalists and win $5,000 each.

4. Round winner

From the top 3 finalists, our expert panel of judges will decide which dream should be named the winner. They receive an additional $5,000 grant and go on to the Grand Final.

5. The People’s Choice

At the end of the year, we go back to the polls and ask the Australian public to vote for their favourite dream one last time. The People’s Choice $10,000 grant will go to the Round Winner with the most valid votes, and will be announced at the Grand Final Awards Night.

6. Grand Final

Winners from each round pitch to the judges and are invited to attend the Grand Final Awards Night where the annual winner is announced. Each of the four grand finalists will receive an additional grant of up to $30,000.

So what are you waiting for? Submit your dream for the chance to help your cause.
