Applications are now open for the 2017 Resilient Australia Awards.

Now in their 18th year, the awards celebrate innovation and best practice in disaster resilience and are open to all Australians with an interest in emergency management and natural disasters.

By showcasing the work of volunteers, communities, businesses and others involved in making our communities safer, the awards can inspire others to think about how they can be more disaster resilient.

This year’s awards include categories for school students and photography, along with awards for the best government, business and community group projects from each state and territory.

Whether you’re an individual or a group, the Australian Government wants to hear how you’ve made your community safer, stronger and better prepared.

Australia has more than its fair share of natural disasters, including fires, floods and cyclones, but by working together we can reduce their destructive impact.

That is why the Australian Government is pleased to celebrate innovative ways in which Australians are working to protect their communities.

More than 150 applications were received for last year’s awards, with winners including Anglesea Primary School in Victoria for its fire education partnership Survive and Thrive program, and Queensland-based photographer Karin Calvert’s moving picture of Yeppoon State Emergency Service volunteer Bob Jeacocke, which received the national photography prize.

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

The Australian Government is proud to sponsor these awards with the states and territories.

Applications are open until 30 June 2017.
