7NEWS Young Achiever Awards


The purpose of the 7NEWS Young Achiever Awards is to acknowledge, encourage and most importantly promote the positive achievements of all young people throughout Queensland up to and including 29 years of age as of 31st December each year.

Tickets to the Gala Presentation Dinner are now on sale!


In light of the current COVID-19 situation, we have postponed what is always a sell-out 7NEWS Young Achiever Awards Gala Presentation Dinner from Friday night 8th May to the new date of Friday 25th September.

But don't worry your tickets purchased will be held in credit towards the new event date of the 25th September 2020, so that you do not miss out. You don’t have to do anything, your booking for 25th September is confirmed! Additional tickets are still available for purchase, until sold out.

Please ensure that you let the other guests in your party know about the date change. Thank you for your understanding and patience and please don't worry as your attendance for the new date for this extraordinarily popular event are secure!

We sincerely apologise for the change - it is something that is completely out of our control and we want to do our best to keep all of you safe.

We encourage you to cancel any accommodation or flights you may have booked for Friday 8th May and rebook for 25th September. It is our understanding that airlines and hotels are waiving cancellation fees and giving credits towards new flight and accommodation bookings.

During this time, remember to stay safe and look out for one another – for more information specifically regarding the virus please visit the Australian Department of Health’s COVID-19 Information Page or the World Health Organisation Advice Page.

Thank you for supporting our young people by attending the 7NEWS Young Achiever Awards QLD.
