ACT Awards

As it is now a custom, several African Australians are awarded each year by Celebration of African Australians in the ACT Awards (CAAA).

Our Story

In showcasing the awards, we aim to identify role models who will serve as mentors to young African Australians; inspire and motivate African community members to utilize the vast opportunities available to them; and promote Australia as a multicultural society where all ethnic groups have a ‘fair go’ for opportunities and positions. Therefore, the aim of Celebration of African Australians Inc (“Celebrate”) is to celebrate, appreciate and showcase the contributions of African Australians to our collective growth and prosperity. This is a flow-on from the United Nation’s proclamation of 2011 as the International Year for People of African Descent.
