Queensland Greats Awards

Nominations are now open for the 2019 Queensland Greats Awards.

Now in its 19th year, the Queensland Greats Awards recognises the efforts and achievements of remarkable individuals and institutions for their invaluable contribution to the history and development of our great state.

Nominations are being accepted across three categories:

  • Individual—for individuals who have shown a lifetime of dedication and contribution to the development of Queensland.
  • Institution—for companies or organisations operating in Queensland, public or private, regardless of size or industry, that have contributed to Queensland for a considerable period. This includes multi-national subsidiaries, partnerships, franchises, non-government associations, community organisations, registered charities, government agencies and bodies.
  • Posthumous—to honour deceased individuals who demonstrated a lifetime of dedication and contribution to the development of Queensland.

A total of 90 individuals, 14 institutions and four posthumous recipients have now been honoured as Queensland Greats. The 2019 Queensland Greats will be announced at a ceremony in Brisbane on or around Queensland Day, 6 June 2019.

Queensland Greats are honoured with commemorative plaques displayed proudly at Roma Street Parkland, Brisbane.
