Local Citizen of the Year Awards

It's time to nominate deserving members of your community for the Australia Day 2023 Local Citizen of the Year Awards.

Community is at the heart of our national day, making it the perfect time to honour and recognise the achievements of Australians making a real difference in their communities.

The NSW Citizen of the Year Awards have been a part of the Australia Day in NSW program since 2005, with Local Government Areas (LGAs) embracing the program to celebrate outstanding citizens across the state.

Each year, LGAs register for the program and invite their communities to nominate a worthy member of their community to receive a NSW Local Citizen of the Year Award in the following award categories:

Each council has its own award guidelines and nomination process. For more information on nominating your local Citizen of the Year, contact your local council
