Posted on 09 Apr, 2019
Submissions for the 2019 Resilient Australia Awards are now open. The awards celebrate and promote initiatives that make communities safer and better prepared for hazards and emergencies.
The awards are celebrating 20 years and we hope to see a wide range of projects submitted from across Australia, in both rural and metro contexts from the not-for-profit sector. This year we are also searching for award submissions that best capture drought resilience. Previous recognitions include recycling initiatives, emergency evacuation plans and local government action to enhance resilience.
The awards are also on social media, the hashtag is #RAA2019 and you can also find them on Twitter at @AIDR_News and Facebook at @AIDRnews, they would love to have you join the conversation.
Submissions are open in every state and territory until 17 May. There’s even a photography category for images that best represent resilience. For more information about submission requirements and to find out more about the awards please visit our website.
