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.
