Organizer: Mission of Hope
Have you ever wondered how you could show a fellow Muslim that you are proud of their achievements and contributions to the Australian community? Mission of Hope has the answer. Nominate them for the only National awards program – the Annual Australian Muslim Achievement Awards (AMAA) 2012. These Awards are open to all.
This Annual event hosted by Mission of Hope aims to recognise and celebrate various individuals and organisations for their tireless efforts within the Australian community.
Now in its seventh year running, the AMAAs is announcing a new award category – The People’s Choice Award. This is the only award that will be chosen based on a public voting system.
The much-anticipated AMAAs will be held in Melbourne for the second time in 2012 and is proudly sponsored by the Islamic Museum of Australia.
The Awards is instrumental in raising the profile of Australian Muslims, both at an individual and organisational level and promote their achievements. The AMAAs are more than just a celebration of the ‘who’s who’ in the Australian Muslim Community. These Awards celebrate the important role Australian Muslims have in this great country.
The AMAAs also recognise the efforts of non-Muslims who have helped foster mutual respect and understanding by awarding an Australian non-Muslim the prestigious Abyssinian Award.
The most anticipated categories include the ‘AMAA Woman of the Year’, the ‘AMAA Man of the Year’ and the ‘Australian Muslim Lifetime Achievement Award.’
The Categories you could nominate from include:
- Woman of the Year
