How can I enter?

The competition is split into three stages. Throughout, we will be looking for evidence of purpose and critical thinking – as well as the practical skills that will mark you out as one of the best.

Stage 1: State competition

In the first stage, we will challenge you to answer a case study in 750 words or less. Do well here against some of the best minds and you will become a regional winner rewarded with a trip to Melbourne to compete in the Oceania country competition.

Stage 2: Oceania country competition

In the second stage, each regional winner will compete in the Oceania finals where you will participate in individual and group activities. 1st, 2nd and 3rd place receive an EY internship in their respective office. The Oceania overall finalist will also win a place in the global final.

Stage 3: Global final

Taking place in Amsterdam, the successful Oceania winner will attend the EY Young Tax Professional of the Year (YTPY) International final where you will work closely with people from other cultures and backgrounds from across the world. You will be challenged with individual and group activities in front of EY leaders, clients and academia judges.

The awards ceremony

YTPY finalists will be invited to a prestigious awards ceremony where — after a review of everyone’s performance throughout the competition — the winners will be announced.
