2017 Advance Global Australian Awards nominations are now open

It has been almost two months since we celebrated the 2016 Advance Global Australian Awards – a night where some of Australia’s brightest individuals were awarded across numerous industries, and where Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull delivered an incredibly inspiring address on the power of Australia and its people - no matter where they live in the world. 

We were honoured to be able to showcase some of the best Australian talent around the world at the stunning Art Gallery of NSW on October 21. What it really highlighted to us, was the huge breadth of untapped and unrecognised talent of Australians and Alumni around the world.

We’re staunch on continuing to give inspiring Australians a platform to showcase their endeavours, their struggles and their achievements, that are not only inspiring, but are changing the world.

Now we're asking you to help us make the 2017 Awards just as astonishing as this year’s.

Nominations for the 2017 Awards open today, and will close at 5pm AEDT on Friday the 24th of February 2017. Help us by thinking of someone who inspires you - it could be a colleague whose work is ground breaking, a family member who is making international waves in their field, a friend, a roommate, someone you met at the office Christmas party, at the local café.pub or sports field. We want to connect with trailblazers from all corners of the world, in all industries, whether they are known to a hand full of people or thousands. Nominate your pick for the Advance Global Australian Awards now.

If you have any questions, any queries, or require any clarification, please reach out to us at awards@advance.org.

We can't wait to learn more about the nominees – any one of whom could very well be standing onstage, receiving the Overall Winner Award from the Prime Minister of Australia, in October next year.
