2022 Awards Gala Evening

The Blind Australian of the Year 2022 Awards Gala held on Friday 28 October 2022 at the Greek Club, South Brisbane was a huge success. We want to take a moment to thank everyone who came along to join in the celebrations and also to our generous sponsors, without whom we could not run such a prestigious event.

Congratulations goes to Callum Hooley from NT – Winner, Blind Australian of the Year 2022 and Craig Shanahan, The Blind Chef Café & Dessert Bar from NSW – Inaugural Winner, Link Vision Employer of Choice Award 2022.

The evening was accompanied with music from Steve Sparrow and captured perfectly by Nicola from Nicola J Bloedel Photography.

Keep an eye out for the upcoming photo gallery and we look forward to doing it all again in 2023.
