Red Cross National Awards

A way to recognise Red Cross people for their contributions to Red Cross and the community.

Australian Red Cross values the tremendous contributions our members, volunteers and staff make as champions of humanity in bringing aid to vulnerable people and advancing the organisation’s reputation and operations.

The Red Cross National Awards are a way to recognise special achievements by Red Cross people, with awards going to those who display exceptional leadership, service or performance through their contributions to Red Cross and the community.

Nominations can be submitted twice annually and all nominations must be submitted to the State or Territory Awards Committee before going to the National Awards Committee. You can contact to be put in touch with your State or Territory Awards Committee Secretary.

Round 2 2020 nominations close on Friday 5 June 2020. Please send all submissions approved by State Awards Committees to, including a copy of the proofed citation in Word format along with the editable and signed PDF for each nomination.
