Established in 2012, the Advance Awards recognise and celebrate the incredible achievements and talent of Australians who are making an extraordinary impact on the global stage in industry sectors that are of particular importance to Australia and Australians. 

Every day, somewhere around the world, there are Australians solving important problems, asking complex questions, testing theories, pushing boundaries – and making new and exciting discoveries.

Each year, Advance reaches out via its vast diaspora of global Australians to identify these Australians – the people who are making truly outstanding advances in their field, creating life-changing contributions to the community and in doing so, making an incredible difference to the world.

The achievements and impact of these impressive global Australians is then brought before an eminent panel of judges, with the result – a list of outstanding finalists and worthy Advance Award winners, each reflective of the true spirit of enterprise and selfless contribution that lies at the heart of Australia.

The Advance Awards provide a unique opportunity to celebrate the contribution that our Global Australians are making around the world.

The 2021 Advance Awards winners will be selected from a shortlist of outstanding finalists in relevant industry categories, such as:

  • The Arts
  • Commercial Creatives
  • Education
  • Financial Services
  • Life Sciences
  • Social Impact
  • Sustainability
  • Science and Technology

Additionally, the 2021 Advance Awards will celebrate those winners recognised for their extraordinary achievements in line with the following pinnacle Advance awards:

Global Impact Award – recognising the extraordinary work of an Australian making a positive impact on the world

Advance Alumni Award – recognising the achievements of an international alumnus of an Australian university
