Australian of the Year Awards
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 2020 Awards, just complete the online nomination form at australianoftheyear.org.au. It may be someone in your own family, maybe a friend, work colleague, or even someone you’ve never met but who you admire and find inspiring - either way your nomination could mean the world to them.
