Nomination Forms

Nominating for an award within the Order of Australia

To nominate someone for an award please use our new online nomination form. The new form is easier to use and you can save and return to the form for up to 14 days if you need to find any final information before submitting your nomination. This form is hosted by the Australian Government Department of Industry and you will be redirected to the website to complete the form.  We are keen to know how we can improve the form so please provide feedback.  Click here to nominate… (System maintenance occurs regularly Thursday 19:00 to 24:00 – we apologise for any inconvenience - the online form may be unavailable during this period)

You will need to know some basic information about the person you are nominating to complete the form. This includes their name, age, a telephone number and an address at which they can be contacted and other contact information if available.  It is helpful if you know whether or not they are an Australian citizen, but if you don’t know it won’t stop you completing the form. You will be asked to say why you think the person is deserving of an award and to provide any details of their actions or service that support this that you are aware of.  You will also need to supply the details of up to four referees who we may contact in order to get more information about the nominee.

If you can’t use the online nomination form you can use an offline form downloadable here…
