2024 AUSTRALIAN OF THE YEAR AWARDS – NOMINATE HERE
Nominations for 2024 will close on 31 July 2023.
Since its inception in 1960, the Australian of the Year Awards has provided a focal point for Australia Day celebrations and a forum for the recognition of outstanding achievement.
Each year our nation celebrates the contributions of eminent Australians through the Australian of the Year Awards by profiling leading citizens who are role models for us all. They inspire us through their achievements and challenge us to make our own contribution to creating a better Australia.
The Awards honour an extraordinary group of Australians who ignite discussion and change on issues of national importance.
The Australian of the Year Awards provide everyone with the opportunity to recognise any Australian who makes them proud.
Special message from Her Excellency, the Honourable Frances Adamson AC, Governor of South Australia:
