Premier's Awards for Excellence
The Premier’s Awards for Excellence recognises the exceptional work of individuals, initiatives and teams in driving and implementing change across the Queensland public sector and our state.
Nominations were accepted across six categories that aligned with Our Future State: Advancing Queensland’s Priorities, especially in the response and recovery to COVID-19:

An overall Premier’s Award for Excellence will also be awarded to a team or initiative who has shown exemplary leadership during the response and recovery to COVID-19.
