Resilient Australia Awards

Resilient Australia Award Logo 2021

The Resilient Australia Awards celebrate and promote initiatives that build whole of community resilience to disasters and emergencies around Australia, as well as images capturing resilience in action. The awards recognise collaboration and innovative thinking across all sectors.

Now in its 23rd year, the awards recognise outstanding contributions in each state and territory across seven categories: business, community, government, local government, mental health and wellbeing, school, and photography. The awards recognise a wide range of initiatives; with past projects centred on risk assessment and mitigation; mental health and wellbeing; education, training and research; and community engagement, as well as response and recovery.

State and territory award winners are considered for national award categories, along with projects entered directly to the national awards. Projects selected as national finalists will benefit from national exposure through a range of communication channels.

The Resilient Australia Awards is proudly sponsored by the Australian Government in partnership with the states and territories and managed by the Australian Institute for Disaster Resilience (AIDR).
