Nominate your LGBT hero and be in the running for a free ticket to Honour Awards

LAST UPDATED // Monday, 08 September 2014 12:02 Written by // Cec Busby

It’s eight years since the Honour Awards began celebrating LGBT people and organisations for their contribution to the community, and the time has come once more for you to nominate your local heroes.

This year the awards’ organisers are offering nominators the opportunity to vie for a free ticket to the gala event which is held at Sydney’s Ivy Ballroom. Simply nominate your hero in one of the seven categories and you could be in the running for a ticket to the festivities.

Nominations can be submitted in seven categories covering the business, health, education, community, legal, political, media and cultural sectors. Nominations are free and can be submitted via the Honour Awards website.

All 28 finalists – as well as the people** who nominate them – receive a free ticket to the gala event. For the first time, this year’s Awards also include the Cayte Latta Memorial Award for Visual Arts with a $1000 cash prize made possible by an endowment from the Friends of Cayte.

Aurora Chair Adam Niewand says the Honour Awards provide a valuable opportunity to pay tribute to people and organisations that are making a difference in the lives of LGBTI people in NSW.

“The Honour Awards are all about celebrating how people from all walks of life are helping or inspiring others in our community,” Niewand said. “So we’re inviting community members to nominate people or organisations they feel have provided leadership or achieved outstanding success within the LGBTI community or have provided excellent service or made a significant contribution to the LGBTI community.”

The Honour Awards take place on September 17 from 630pm – 11pm. Tickets $85. More: www.honourawards.com.au

** only the first person to nominate a finalist gets a free ticket.
