Indigenous Governance Awards: Deadline extended

Applications for the 2021 Indigenous Governance Awards now close Friday 9 April 2021.

By entering the 2021 Indigenous Governance Awards, Indigenous-led organisations, projects and initiatives from right across Australia have the chance to share in $90,000 prize money, as well as receiving corporate mentoring, feedback from an esteemed judging panel, and media and networking opportunities.

Three award categories

This year’s awards have been expanded to include a category for small to medium incorporated organisations.

The 2021 categories are:

  • Projects or unincorporated initiatives
  • Small to medium incorporated organisations (new category)
  • Large incorporated organisations


As with previous years, an independent panel of judges will assess applicants based on innovation, effectiveness, self-determination, sustainability, and cultural legitimacy.

Also, as with previous years, the Indigenous Governance Awards are open to all previous applicants, except for previous winners or highly commended organisations.
