The 7th Annual Blind Australian of the Year Awards
Contribution, Excellence, Self-Determination. The Blind Australian of the Year Awards actively acknowledge and highlight the contribution that over half a million people who live with low vision and blindness make to Australian society. They celebrate the exceptional contribution of individuals living with blindness and low vision who, by their example, inspire others to excellence and by their actions, improve Australian community life. They spotlight those businesses and organisations paving the way for real, meaningful and sustainable inclusion of people living with disability.
These prestigious awards bring Australia wide acknowledgement for the recipients, as well as generous prizes and benefits.
Help us search Australia to find these hidden gems, the 2024 Blind Australian of the Year and the 2024 Employer of Choice.
