West Australian of the Year Awards 2020


The Western Australian of the Year Awards recognise and celebrate outstanding contribution to our State by those born and bred in Western Australia, or those who have chosen to make Western Australia their home.

In March 2020, due to the COVID-19 crisis, we made the difficult decision to cancel the Western Australian of the Year Awards for 2020. WA Day Festival, SOTA (State of the Art) Music Festival and all regional WA Day festivals were also cancelled – ensuring public health was put first in 2020. Read the full statement here.

We all want to celebrate the beautiful State we live in, and these events will return bigger and better than ever in 2021.  The Western Australian of Year Awards 2021 gala dinner will be held at Crown Perth on Friday 4 June, 2021.
