Melbourne Awards 2014
Wednesday, 30th April 2014 at 12:11 pm

Nominations are now open for the City of Melbourne's annual Melbourne Awards for 2014 including the contributions of community organisations and the Melburnian of the Year.

Now in its 12th year, Lord Mayor Robert Doyle said the Melbourne Awards were an opportunity to acknowledge and highlight the inspirational stories of passionate Melburnians who shape the city.

“The Awards honour a diverse range of contributions, focusing on individuals, community organisations and organisations who work tirelessly for the benefit of the city. Highlighting these achievements inspires and challenges others to help create a better future for Melbourne,” he said.

“Winners are selected through an independent judging process, which connects entrants with industry leaders and professionals who often become champions for the achievements they witness.”

The Awards honour significant contributions to Melbourne’s sustainability, community and profile.

The Awards categories are:

• Contribution to Profile – projects or activities that have built Melbourne’s reputation as a national centre for business, knowledge, innovation, sport, shopping, entertainment, food and culture;

• Contribution to Community – projects or activities that enhance the lives of residents and workers through new approaches to community services and volunteer work, improvements to accessibility, developments in architecture and design, or improvements to parks, gardens and open spaces;

• Contribution to Sustainability – projects, events or activities that create a more environmentally sustainable city through advancements in sustainable innovation and design or the development of new environmental projects or programs.

The City of Melbourne bestows the Melburnian of the Year title upon an individual for significant contribution to the community.

Recent recipients include Major Brendan Nottle of the Salvation Army, Mushroom Records founder and music industry icon Michael Gudinski and prominent businessman and philanthropist Harold Mitchell.

An independent judging panel of industry leaders and Melbourne personalities selects the recipients of the Melbourne Awards.

Nominations for the 2014 Melbourne Awards close on June 16. Winners will be announced at a Gala Ceremony at Town Hall in November.
