Being nominated for the Australian of the Year Awards is a great honour. This is your opportunity to recognise and reward someone who inspires you. 

You are invited to nominate a friend, family member, community leader, colleague or even someone you don't know - any Australian who you believe makes our country a better place to live. Please remember to check the eligibility Criteria before you begin your nomination.

You can Nominate online or download a nomination form and return it via post. If you require any assistance submitting a nomination please call 1300 655 193 or email

We encourage you to submit supporting documentation such as biographies, newspaper articles and personal references with your nomination. Please note that all documentation submitted with your nomination will be retained by the National Australia Day Council, so please do not send originals.

The information you submit in your nomination is presented to a panel in each state and territory for selection. For that reason, it is important that you provide as much accurate information as possible.

Nominations are open all year round and any received now will be considered for the 2015 Awards.

One nomination is all it takes. Best of luck to you and your nominee!
