Resilient Australia Awards

The Resilient Australia Awards (RAAs) is a national program to recognise and promote initiatives which strengthen community disaster resilience across the nation.

The RAAs are open to everyone: individuals, not-for-profit organisations, small and large businesses, local and state government, schools, education institutions, research bodies and emergency service agencies.

Now in its 21st year, the awards recognise outstanding contributions in each state and territory in six categories: community, business, local government, government, school and photography. The program recognises a wide range of initiatives; with past projects centred on risk assessment and mitigation; education, training and research; and community engagement, as well as response and recovery.

Key Dates:

  • Submissions Open – 9 March 2021
  • Submissions Close – 3 June 2021
  • People’s Choice Photography Voting via Facebook – 17 June – 1 July 2021
