Australian of the Year: Worthy of Attention

Nominations are now open for the Australian of the Year Awards 2017!

Each year, the Australian of the Year Awards focuses on Australians worthy of attention. Who would you like to see recognised?

Nominations are being sought for Australians excelling in all fields of endeavour including arts, media and entertainment, business, charity, education, environment, indigenous/ethnic services, medicine/science, engineering/technology and sport.

There are four categories to choose from:

  • Australian of the Year – open to all Australians who deserve recognition for their extraordinary achievements, contributions to the community and nation and who are exemplary ambassadors for Australia;
  • Senior Australian of the Year – recognises those Australians aged 60 years and over who continue to achieve and contribute to the community;
  • Young Australian of the Year – recognises those extraordinary young Australians aged 16-30 years who are contributing to our community; and
  • Australia’s Local Hero – recognises Australians who make a real difference in their local communities and whose outstanding contributions enrich the lives of those around them.

Nominate online or by collecting a nomination postcard from the Office of the Outback Communities Authority in Port Augusta.
