The words Australian of the Year Awards appears in blue text. The word awards is in bold and has a small right facing arrow pointing towards the words. In the bottom section of the image, the words reflect, respect and celebrate appear.

Nominations for the Australian of the Year Awards are now open.

These annual awards recognise Australians who have made a significant contribution to the nation and serve as an inspiration for all Australians.

Each year, nominations are accepted for the four award categories:

  • Australian of the Year
  • Senior Australian of the Year
  • Young Australian of the Year
  • Australia’s Local Hero

Anyone can submit a nomination for the Australian of the Year awards.

Eligibility and selection criteria can be found as part of the online nomination form.

Nominations for the 2021 Australian of the Year Awards close Friday 31 July 2020.

The National Australia Day Council manages the Australian of the Year Awards. State and Territory Award recipients are announced later in the year, with the National Awards announced on 25 January 2021.
