24 May 2018

​There’s only one week left before submissions close for the 2018 Resilient Australia Awards – don’t miss the chance to share your work and inspire others. 

The awards are an opportunity to celebrate initiatives that build resilience and inspire others to take action – making communities safer, more connected and better prepared for natural hazards and emergencies.

Submissions will be accepted in each state and territory for business, community, government, schools and photography award categories. The winners from each jurisdiction will be considered for national awards.  The awards are open to all Australians, including but not limited to individuals, not for profit organisations, small and large businesses, local and state government, schools, education institutions, research bodies, and emergency service agencies.


Do you have a pr​​oject that could  inspire someone else? The Resilient Australia National Award recognises government, businesses, community groups and researchers who build resilience in their area.
