Nominations for the Australian of the Year Awards 2013 have now closed.

It is wonderful to see so many Australians being nominated for the inspiring ways they contribute to our communities.  Thank you to all who have nominated someone for Australian of the Year, Senior Australian of the Year, Young Australian of the Year or Local Hero.

In the coming weeks each state and territory will select four finalists in each category.  Presentations will be held around the country to honour these finalists and one state / territory recipient in each category will then travel to Canberra for the National Award presentation on 25 January 2013.

Although nominations are closed for 2013, you can now nominate someone for the Australian of the Year 2014.

Learn more about the Awards process here and be sure to keep an eye on both our www.australianoftheyear.org.au and Facebook page to be one of the first to know who has been recognised.
