PEDESTRIAN.TV has partnered with hipages to celebrate the dang good work of Australia's tradies.

We all need to pat ourselves on the back every once in a while. Partake in a bit of a self-imposed gas up, if you will. You can wait around for validation from others, but sometimes you have to put your best foot forward and back yourself unashamedly.

If you’re a tradie under the age of 30 running your own business or is on the brink of getting started, we’ve cooked up the perfect opportunity for you to toot your own horn.

We’ve partnered with hipages to embark on the search for Australia’s best tradies under the age of 30 – the cream of the crop of brickies, chippies, tilers and everything in between. hipages is Australia’s largest online tradie marketplace, a platform allowing tradies to advertise their skillset and connect with customers, championing the diverse businesses tradies run around the country.

If you think you’ve got admirable chops and have excelled in all areas required to thrive as a tradie, nominate yourself below.


We’re well aware that the work of a tradie is hard, multifaceted and requires a tonne of different skills, so hipages will be picking a shortlist based on the following categories:

  • How you approach sustainability
  • How you give back to your community
  • How you incorporate tech in your work
  • Your impeccable customer service skills
  • Your unique personality

If winning eternal lunchbreak bragging rights and worksite clout isn’t enough of an incentive, each shortlisted nominee will receive a hefty gift pack filled with the following:

  • An $150 Mastercard gift card
  • A winner photoshoot
  • A free 6-month membership to hipages 
  • A hipages cooler bag
  • A Trademutt workwear set

So, if you’re feeling ready to take your career to the next level and flex your skills, get nominating ASAP as nominations close on the 11th June at midnight AEST.
