Nominate someone great in your community

13 October 2022




West Arnhem Regional Council has opened nominations for the 2023 Australia Day Citizen of the Year Awards across the West Arnhem region, and we need your help to give our community’s best the recognition they deserve.
We’re looking for someone who makes a difference in our communities including Jabiru, Gunbalanya, Maningrida, Warruwi and Minjilang. Someone who contributes to our community and inspires those around them. They could be quiet achievers, community members or unknown heroes.

The ‘Citizen of the Year’ awards are community-led awards which acknowledge a number of community members who need a pat on the back - and more - for the incredible work that they do.
It is a pleasure for WARC to be able to facilitate these awards every year to celebrate and say thank you to the incredible people who help make the region a great place to live.
We are reaching out to organisations and local residents who can help us by identifying and nominating community members that are doing outstanding things. The Awards rely on members of the public to nominate, so we encourage you to consider putting someone forward in your networks for the 2023 Awards.


Your nominee could be recognised in one of our three categories:
• Citizen of the Year
• Young Citizen of the Year (16 to 30 years)
• Community Event of the Year
