Nominate for Australian of the Year
Tuesday, 18th June 2013 at 9:06 am

Nominations are open for the 2014 Australian of the Year Awards to celebrate individuals who contribute to the fabric of Australia.

National Australia Day Chair Adam Gilchrist urged people to nominate Australians who deserved to be recognised in some way.


 

"Everyone has an opinion on who should be given the awards, but unless an eligible"The awards offer an opportunity to say thank you to someone whose contributions you

appreciate or to recognise someone you consider inspiring,” he said.

nomination is submitted for an individual, they can't be considered for the honour – so it's up to you to submit a nomination and tell us who you want to see in the running for the awards.”

The categories include Australian of the Year, Senior Australian of the Year, Young Australian of the Year or Australia’s Local Hero.

This year’s Australian of the Year, Ita Buttrose said meeting her fellow award finalists in January reinforced the importance of the awards.

“It reminded me just how many extraordinary people we have in Australia making a difference in the community,” she said.

“I think it’s important to recognise the achievements of everyday people, many of whom are very humble about what they do,” Ms Buttrose said.

"Many of the finalists had stories of achievement that none of us would have been aware of unless they had been brought to national attention through the awards. I like the way the awards shine a spotlight on these remarkable quiet achievers.”

Nominations award categories:

  • Australian of the Year;
  • Senior Australian of the Year (60 years and over);
  • Young Australian of the Year (16-30 years);
  • Australia's Local Hero.

Nominations can be made online at australianoftheyear.org.au or contact 1300 655 193 for more information.

Nominations close Friday, August 2 2013.
