18.07.17 / Australian of the Year Awards / 2018 Nominations

Nominations for the 2018 Australian of the Year Awards are live and we need your help to give our nation’s best the recognition they deserve.

We’re looking for someone who’s great at what they do, contributes to Australian society and inspires those around them. They could be quiet achievers, community members, household names or unknown heroes. The Awards recognise people from all walks of life, so you never know who the next Australian of the Year might be.

We are reaching out to help us by identifying and nominating Australians that are doing outstanding things. The Awards rely on members of the public to nominate. 

Your nominee could be recognised in one of our four categories:

  • Australian of the Year
  • Senior Australian of the Year (65 years and over)
  • Young Australian of the Year (16 to 30 years)
  • Australia’s Local Hero.


Nominating someone and highlighting the work they do can mean the world to a person and it’s easy to do. Just tell us who they are, what they've achieved and why you'd like to see them recognised. You can nominate online here.

Nominations for the 2018 Awards close soon, so make sure you get yours in by midnight on Sunday 6 August 2017.

Now is the time to be great and nominate.
