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

Tradies – they’re the goddamn backbone of this country.

They’ve got us covered when our homes go awry and know their way around a balanced packed lunch better than anyone else. However, thanks to general stereotyping, The Chats and societal views of labour, the good work our tradies’ do can sometimes go unappreciated.

Tradies are multifaceted as hell and can be super-savvy with how they conduct their business. So, to spotlight their skills, we’ve partnered with hipages to search for Australia’s 30 best tradies under the age of 30. hipages provides tradies with an online platform to advertise their skillset and find contract work, championing the diverse businesses tradies run across the country – so it’s fair to say they know exactly what to look for when it comes to judging a tradie’s many virtues.

To truly encompass the diversity of tradies across the country, they’ll be picking a shortlist based on the following categories:

  • Their approach to sustainability
  • How they give back to their community
  • How they incorporate tech in their work
  • Their impeccable customer service skills
  • Their unique personality

So if you’ve got a tradie mate who you think deserves recognition for their work, enter them into the running below:

If the glory of being recognised as one of the country’s best tradies under 30 isn’t enough of an incentive to shout out your pal, the prizes for the 30 shortlisted include:

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

Sounds like a pretty sweet lil’ pack if you ask me. Get hammering away at their application, and you could be the one responsible for getting your mate the praise and glory they deserve. Nominations close on the 11th June at midnight AEST.
