Council's annual awards ceremony celebrates the many individuals, community groups and organisations that make outstanding contributions to the community every year. We currently select a Citizen of the Year, Young Citizen of the Year, Community Event of the Year, Community Organisation of the Year, and Community Environment Project of the Year.

Anyone who lives, works or volunteers in the Borough of Queenscliffe can be nominated by any member of the community. Our reference group panel then judges the nominations against set criteria and makes a recommendation to Council on who should be awarded each title.
