Queensland Reconciliation Awards

Nominations have now closed for the 2016 Queensland Reconciliation Awards.

The Queensland Reconciliation Awards program recognises businesses, community organisations, educational institutions and partnerships fostering reconciliation in Queensland.

Initiatives that are building cross-cultural understanding, or changing perspectives on reconciliation through employment, training, education, partnerships and community engagement, are all worthy of a nomination.

The awards offer a total of $25,000 in prize money across five categories: Business, Community, Education, Partnership and the Premier’s Reconciliation Award.

“It is my great privilege to once again be the Queensland Reconciliation Awards Ambassador for the fourth year running. I truly look forward to hearing about the great initiatives undertaken across Queensland to bridge the gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians.”

Johnathan Thurston, 2016 Awards Ambassador.

Award recipients will be announced at a ceremony during Reconciliation Week, 27 May–3 June 2016.
