The nominations process is being finalised by June 2022, whilst the members of the selection Panel are appointed with the Chairperson. The Panel will review this process once it has been appointed.

It is expected that online nomination forms will be available from June 2022 for submission in accordance with the criteria for each award.  These will be then submitted to the Panel by September 2022, after which the panel will meet to review and select winners based on merit in each category.  A fair process that considers each nomination against the criteria will be established.

We hope to then hold an awards ceremony in early 2023 to recognise winners across Australia; and would expect this to be an annual event that is ideally held in different states.  

In addition, we hope to provide assistance to award winners in submission of their achievements to broader awards, such as the Australian Honours and Awards, and other similar mechanisms across Australia.
