Nominees for the North Queensland Sportstar Awards will be judged on their achievements and performances during the period of 1 October 2017 to 30 September 2018. The following criteria in order of importance are used in the selection process: International representation, National representation, State representation.
Nominations are considered by a panel appointed by the NQSF which determines the winners and runners up.


Nominees cannot be an employee within the sport they are being nominated for, nominees must be a volunteer. Any remuneration must be disclosed on the nomination form.


A nominee is a resident of a town/city/shire if they consider the town/city or shire their primary place of residence. For example, several nominees are required to train and compete for extended periods internationally to compete at the level they have attained; however, they return to their permanent residence within their host local authority when in the NQSF region. Membership of local sports club or association assists proof of residency. North Queensland born Golf Star Karrie Webb is an example of a person who could not be nominated because she resides full time in another country.
