Melbourne Achiever Award

Each year, the Committee recognises the outstanding achievements of individuals and organisations through the Melbourne Achiever Award.

First awarded in 1993, the Committee’s Melbourne Achiever Award has recognised the extraordinary efforts of proud Melburnians for almost 30 years. This prestigious prize is presented to an individual and an organisation who reflect the vision of the Committee, to shape Melbourne’s future. Significant contributions to our city and outstanding achievements which will leave a lasting legacy, are celebrated at the Committee’s Annual Dinner, in presence of our Patron, the Governor of Victoria, the Honourable Linda Dessau AC.

Winners are presented with a limited edition of The Magic Pudding miniatures sculpture, by Louis Laumen, the centrepiece of The Ian Potter Foundation Children’s Garden at the Royal Botanic Gardens in Melbourne. The sculpture in the Gardens and the miniatures are both projects founded by Simon Warrender during his time as a member of the Committee for Melbourne’s Future Focus Group.

Committee for Melbourne members are encouraged to nominate an outstanding contributor to our city and its future – an individual and/or an organisation.

Please submit your nomination form via email to Rita Romeo, Communications, Events and Engagement Manager by 30 July.
