2023 Australia Day Award nominations extended

Tuesday, 13 December

The nomination period for Lismore City Council’s 2023 Australia Day Awards has been extended until Friday, 6 January 2023.

The annual Australia Day Awards recognise those in our community who have shown outstanding community spirit, made a significant contribution to the community or made a major achievement in their respective field.

Lismore City Mayor Steve Krieg said Council wants to provide the community with enough time to nominate all deserving community members.

“November and December are busy months for most people. We have extended the nomination period into January to allow the community time to nominate once the Christmas rush has ended,” he said.

“2022 has seen many community members step up and show great leadership in difficult times. Council is hoping to see a large number of nominations this year, more than what we would see in a typical year.”

It only takes five minutes to complete an online nomination. Why not nominate someone who you think deserves to be recognised for the great work they do to make our community an even better place to live and work?

Categories are:
  • Citizen of the Year
  • Young Citizen of the Year
  • Aboriginal Citizen of the Year
  • Services in Community (Individual)
  • Services in Community (Group)
  • Sportsperson (Senior)
  • Sportsperson (Junior)
  • Sports (Team/Group/Organisation)
  • Sustainable Environment
  • Art/Cultural
Nominations close Friday, 6 January. To nominate go to Council’s website at www.lismore.nsw.gov.au.
