1500 nominations and counting...
More than 1500 nominations have now been received for the Australian of the Year Awards 2007.
"With just three weeks to go until nominations close, we're delighted with the response from the Australian public," said Tam Johnston, National Manager of the Australian of the Year Awards.
The award program includes four categories: Australian of the Year; Young Australian of the Year; Senior Australian of the Year and Australia's Local Hero.
"If there is someone you admire, you can nominate them online and tell us about their extraordinary achievements or the difference they have made to a community so they have a chance to be recognised with an award.
"There are so many Australians out there doing great things in our community, but we can only acknowledge their work if someone tells us about them," Tam said.
Nominations close 28 August 2006. Who makes you proud to be Australian?
