Human Rights Award Nominations

The Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission annual Human Rights Medal and Awards are officially open for nominations.

The awards acknowledge the outstanding contributions of ‘local champions’ by entering yourself or nominating someone for these prestigious awards.

To enter you don’t have to be famous or your efforts well-known – just someone who works everyday without fuss or fanfare to promote and protect human rights and overcome discrimination in Australia.

Last year’s winners comprised a range of individuals and organisations covering issues including Indigenous employment and rights, female prisoners, refugees and asylum seekers, mental health and people trafficking.

The Human Rights Medal recognises the achievements of an individual who has made an outstanding contribution to the promotion and protection of human rights in Australia. Last year’s winners were Dick Estens, founder of Moree’s Aboriginal Employment Strategy and Deborah Kilroy, founder of the women’s prison support service Sisters Inside.

Human Rights Awards are also presented to an individual or an organisation that has made significant contributions in the areas of Law, the Community, Print Media, Television, Radio or Arts Non-Fiction.
