ANNOUNCING THE 2016 NOMINEES FOR THE ADVANCE GLOBAL AUSTRALIAN AWARDS

ANNOUNCING THE 2016 NOMINEES FOR THE ADVANCE GLOBAL AUSTRALIAN AWARDS 

Over the past few weeks, the 2016 Advance Global Australian Awards Judging Panel has been working hard to finalise the shortlisted nominees for our celebrated Awards ceremony in October this year. We received countless outstanding nominations across a range of fields of endeavour, from artists, to environmentalists, to entrepreneurs, to educators, and the selection process was not an easy task.

We'd like to thank everyone that submitted a nomination – you’ve helped us uncover a new cohort of Australian individuals who deserve recognition for their incredible achievements. 

Our expectations were completely exceeded with the high standard of nominations that were put forward; it’s undoubtedly a testament to the limitless talent of Australians. We extend a huge congratulations to the nominees on being shortlisted – it is a remarkable achievement.

Ticket sales are now open for the 2016 Advance Global Australian Awards and Summit, both unmissable events for anyone invested in the future of Australia's people and businesses. We welcome you to join us in Sydney alongside Australia's brightest, sharpest, most influential and entrepreneurial individuals to talk about the Australia of the future - one that is more agile, innovative, creative and adaptive.

For any further inquiries, we would love to hear from you at awards@advance.org.
