What will happen to shortlisted nominations?

We will contact the nominators of the shortlisted nominations to provide a video version of their nomination, where possible, or a selection of photos including the nominee and examples of their work that we can use and share as part of the online presentation.  Remember, we need to know:

  • How long they have been volunteering/ working together/providing services
  • The role/activities they undertake
  • The services and support they provide
  • Any challenges they may have faced
  • What they have achieved
  • The impact they have made on the community
  • What makes them unique
  • Why they deserve to win

NOTE: Due to time constraints we will only be showing videos or photos of category winners for each district.
