Submissions are now open for the 2020 Resilient Australia Awards celebrating those in our community who show initiative in helping to create a more disaster resilient Australia.
The awards recognise outstanding contributions in six categories which include- community, business, local government, government, school and photography.
Minister for Emergency Management David Littleproud said the recent unprecedented fires, drought, floods and storms remind us that disasters are a fact of life for Australians.
“The Resilient Australia Awards highlight achievements that may otherwise be unrecognised, with stories that promote disaster resilience.
Now in their 21st year, the awards are open to all Australians, including individuals, not for profit organisations, small and large businesses, local and state government, schools, education institutions, research bodies and emergency service agencies.
Submissions are open until 18 May 2020.
