Australian of the Year Awards
You know what makes an Australian of the Year.
Just look around you.
See people who show courage, sacrifice and kindness.
They may not know you. But you know them.
Now it's time to show them.
Each year our nation celebrates the achievement and contribution 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 Australian of the Year Awards provides all Australians with the opportunity to recognise someone who makes them proud. It’s easy to nominate now for the 2022 Awards, just complete the online nomination form at australianoftheyear.org.au.
