Being nominated for the Australian of the Year Awards is a great honour and every year 128 remarkable Australians from across the country are recognised.

With so many people doing extraordinary things in their community each and every day, we need your help to find them. You can nominate a friend, family member, community leader, colleague or even someone you don't know – any Australian who you admire and see as inspiring. 

Recognising someone can make a difference and one nomination is all it takes to shine a light on an Australian you admire. It’s easy to nominate - just tell us who they are, what they’ve achieved and why you’d like to see them recognised.

Nominations for the 2015 Awards have closed. Any nominations submitted will now be considered in the 2016 Australian of the Year Awards.
