The Australian Human Rights Commission has extended the deadline for nominations for the 2018 Human Rights Awards to Sunday 19 August 2018.
“Our annual Human Rights Awards acknowledge and celebrate the achievements of the many extraordinary Australians who quietly advance human rights in the community,” said Australian Human Rights Commission President, Rosalind Croucher.
“The Commission has a long and proud history of working with individuals, businesses, community organisations and governments to advance the human rights of all Australians.
“If you are inspired by an individual or an organisation because of their human rights work, I urge you to nominate them for a 2018 Human Rights Award,” Emeritus Professor Croucher said.
The Commission encourages nominations across the nine Award categories:
- Human Rights Medal
- Young People’s Human Rights Medal
- Business Award
- Racism. It Stops With Me Award
- Media Award
- Tony Fitzgerald Memorial Community Individual Award
- Community Organisation Award
- Law Award
- Government Award
Multiple nominations are possible, but a separate nomination is required for each award category.
