“I believe we can all play a part to bridge the gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians. These awards honour not only those who are championing the message of reconciliation, but those who are actually making a difference” – Johnathan Thurston, 2015 Awards Ambassador.

Nominations close Friday 6 March 2015.

Award recipients will be announced at a ceremony during Reconciliation Week, 27 May - 3 June 2015.
