The Queensland Multicultural Awards acknowledge outstanding Queenslanders who work and volunteer to promote the benefits of a multicultural society.

This year there are six categories and all nominations will also be considered for a special Minister’s award for Multiculturalism in Queensland.

The categories are:

  • Services and Communities
  • Business Excellence
  • Education and Training Innovation
  • Outstanding Volunteer
  • Communications and Media Achievement
  • Multicultural Ambassador

These long standing awards have played an important role in promoting great examples of multiculturalism in Queensland. They recognise individuals, businesses and community organisations that make a positive difference in local communities and assist our newest Queenslanders to feel at home. If you are someone, or know someone, who does great work in this area, nominate for one of these prestigious awards.

Winners will be announced at a gala dinner on 22 August so mark your calendars for this popular cultural event. The awards will be the opening event of Queensland Multicultural Week which will run from Saturday 22 to Sunday 30 August 2015.
