6.00pm - 6.45pm: Cocktails at the Sydney Opera House Marquee
6.45pm - 10.00pm: Advance Global Australian Awards Gala Dinner

The 2015 Advance Global Australian Awards celebrated Australians around the world, who exhibit remarkable talent, exceptional vision and ambition. They are the only awards to recognise the important contributions of the more than one million Australians living abroad, and for those who have returned home.

“The thing with Australians is that we’re not escaping Australia. The fact that we have chosen to leave a spectacular country, means we have to do something spectacular with what we do” - David Droga, Founder and Creative Chairman, Droga5, Inaugural Global Australian Award Winner

A distinguished group of Australian provocateurs and pioneers, who themselves have made a significant impact on the global stage selected the winners. View our Judges.

"Thanks so much to you and your team for another great year of awards. I cried at least 3 times. Love it. And Baz was awesome." - Joanne Gray, Editor, BOSS

We celebrated our annual Award winners and reveal the overall winner of our overall 2015 Advance Global Australian Award, Karen Day, Dean of Science, University of Melbourne. The winner’s mentees were also announced and many of them attended the event.

The Advance Global Australian Awards Gala Dinner and Ceremony was held at the Sydney Opera House, 14 September 2015, 6.00pm - 10.00pm. See photos from the evening on our Facebook page and videos of the winners here.
