We’re calling upon all individuals in the social sector to help us recognise positive impact.
Impact 25 is an esteemed accolade recognising the most influential people in the Australian social sector, as voted by their peers.
The members of Impact 25 spend their days advocating for the issues of the day, working with disadvantaged and silenced groups, finding ways to improve efficiency, inspiring others and even leading the country.
These extraordinary people take action for the needs of their communities and are positive influences on the lives of those around them, often without recognition or thanks. These awards were developed to create a platform for the social community to celebrate the people who embody the values of the sector.
You can nominate up to two individuals that you believe should be recognised for their positive impact (including yourself)!
Please include less than 100 words for each nominee as to why you think they deserve to be a nominee for the Impact 25 awards.
NOMINEES ANNOUNCED AND VOTING OPENS
A list of 150 nominees will be released for a public vote. Pro Bono Australia will create this list from the pool of all submitted nominations. Every effort will be made to create a list of nominees that we believe accurately represents the spirit of the awards and the work being done in the sector, with a view to streamlining the voting process.
You will then vote for up to three of the nominated individuals. The 25 nominees with the most votes will be crowned the Impact 25 award winners.
In addition to the opportunity to be voted by the sector as one of Pro Bono Australia's Impact 25, each nominee will be eligible to win one of three judges choice awards.
From the final 25 award winners, a panel of esteemed judges will choose one winner for each of the following three categories: Innovation, Influence, and Collaboration.
