Global innovators, Australian style
The Advance Global Australian Awards celebrate international Australians who exhibit remarkable talent, exceptional vision and ambition. The Awards are the only of their kind to recognise the contributions of the one million Australians living abroad, and those who have returned home.
The Advance Global Australian Awards acknowledge achievements across a number of categories and on the night of the Awards a winner of the overall Advance Global Australian Award is announced. The Advance Global Alumni Award celebrates an outstanding non-Australian alumnus of an Australian university. Distinguished Australian pioneers, who themselves have made significant impact on the global stage, select the winners.
The 2017 Advance Global Australian Awards will take place at the Art Gallery of NSW on Tuesday the 10th of October. We hope to see you there.
