Our proprietary online nomination & judging portal

For many years Awards Australia has been fine-tuning our online nomination portal to increase user experience for both nominators and judges.

Since 2014, we have used our portal to assist several Government departments to go from paper based or unsatisfactory software to a seamless online nomination and judging process.

Awards Australia has now worked with the Victorian Multicultural Commission for three years with their Multicultural Awards of Excellence increasing nominations by 500% in 2020. Reducing the workload for Commission staff, streamlining the nomination process and adding a custom-built online judging portal has been key to the success of the collaboration. So much so, that Awards Australia was commissioned to provide the same service for the 2021 Refugee Awards and 2021 Premiers Honour Roll Awards.

We also provide a comprehensive reference checking package, undertaking referee interviews, social media and global media checks for all shortlisted nominations.

If you know of anyone that runs Awards that might be interested in our online portal, please get them to contact Annette Vawser on 0418 373 676 for a chat.



With our Gala Presentations for the Community Achievement Awards happening soon (in every State and Territory of Australia) we hope you’ll consider supporting the Awards. You can purchase at our Shop page or when you buy your tickets for the Gala Presentation.


Directors Message

2021 continues to provide significant challenges, particularly for those living and working in NSW, the ACT and Victoria.

Whilst our Awards team may be based in Melbourne, we have not waivered in our steadfastness to make a difference in communities across Australia, by recognising and empowering community champions to achieve even greater outcomes.

We also continue to innovate. Recent initiatives including an extremely successful Facebook nomination launch party for the 7NEWS Young Achiever Awards (YAA). Why not nominate someone under 30 you know that deserves your appreciation.

Our online Awards shop has also proven a wonderful hit and we are very thankful to all those that have purchased YAA and Community Achievement Awards (CAA) T’shirts, tote bags, business Support Packages and made individual contributions. Thank you! All funds will go towards prize grants for our Award winners: www.awardsaustralia.com/shop

We are also excited to launch our Community Marketplace! All product sales will also go towards prize grants for our Award winners. This is also exciting because we will purchase from Australian businesses to help Australians help each other!

I hope you will take a look, Christmas is coming!

If you would like to know more about our vision to help others, would like to nominate someone, make a purchase, become a partner or join our tribe, we would love to hear from you or check us out at: www.awardsaustralia.com

Good luck to all of the CAA finalists in the upcoming Awards Gala Presentation Dinners across the Country.

Finally thank you to our extraordinary Awards staff and to our sponsor partners who share our vision to make a difference.

I hope you enjoy reading this newsletter to find out what else we are up.

Take care and stay safe
