The Honour Awards is an annual event which acknowledges outstanding service to or achievement within NSW’s lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) community.
Now in their ninth year, the Honour Awards provide NSW’s LGBTI community with an important and unique opportunity to recognise and celebrate excellence and achievement within our community as well as the difference that particular individuals and organisations make in our lives.
Community members are invited to nominate people or organisations they admire for the service they have provided or the contributions they have made, be they big or small.
Nominations are FREE and can be submitted in eight (8) categories:
- Arts and Entertainment
- Visual Arts (Cayte Latta Memorial Award)
- Health and Wellbeing
- Community Organisation
- Young Achiever
- Community Hero
A judging panel selects four finalists (including a winner) from the nominees in each category. Winners receive a range of gifts, and all 32 finalists – as well as the first person who nominates them – receive a free ticket to the gala event.
Join the finalists and celebrate the dynamic spirit of our community at the Honour Awards' inspirational ceremony and fabulously fun cocktail party.
WHEN Thursday 29 September 2015, from 6:30pm
WHERE Ivy Ballroom, 330 George St, Sydney

Make your evening more fun by encouraging family members, friends, colleagues and business associates to come along and join in the celebrations.
Supporters of the LGBTI community are invited to donate products, services and unique experiences for the Honour Awards’ charity auction, which raises money ACON and Aurora.
Every year, ACON has to raise in excess of $1 million to finance many of its HIV support and LGBTI health-related services. Aurora is a charity which raises funds to disburse to gay, lesbian and transgender community organisations.
We would love to thank and recognise your support as soon as possible so please find out more how your business can be involved.
