Tips on nominating for our Community Awards

Friday 06 September 2019

Our Community Awards are an opportunity to recognise the individuals and groups who work hard to make Yarra a fantastic place to live, work and play. Plus, winners will receive a $500 or $250 prize!

Nominating is easier than you think! You don’t need to write an essay about your nominee – dot points will do.

Check out this sample nomination so you know what to expect. 

Before you nominate

To get started, you will need some contact details for your nominee, yourself and a referee who is familiar with your nominee. These details are:

  • Full name
  • Email address
  • Address
  • Contact phone
  • Age (for an individual nominee)

You contact details will remain confidential, and we won’t contact you about anything other than our community awards. 

What to include in your nomination

Tell us why you think your nominee deserves to be recognised. 

Sometimes it’s the little things that people do that make our city a better place. Maybe they’re a positive role model, a volunteer who gives their time to a great community project, or someone who always makes others feel included. 

Have a look at last year’s winners for more ideas.
