13th National Cycling Luminaries Awards opens call for nominations.
The Cycling Promotion Fund has today opened the call for nominations for the 2017 Cycling Luminaries Awards, the thirteenth occasion they have been held.
With past winners coming from as far away as remote Kimberley and Gulf communities as well as our major towns and cities, these Awards are widely recognised and valued across Australia.
Mr Peter Bourke, General Manager of the Cycling Promotion Fund said “the Cycling Luminaries Awards shine the spotlight on the people, places and programs that are getting more people riding across the nation.
“The Awards have been recognising the incredible diversity of cycling programs and achievements since 2002 and we are sure there are many more stories to be told.
“So if you are aware of a person, group or project making a big difference for people riding a bike anywhere in the country, nominate them for an award!”
Previous winners include the Warruwi School on Goulburn Island, 300km north east of Darwin that boosted attendance at school; the Barossa Council in SA focusing on cycle tourism opportunities in the wine region; and The Heart Foundation for the promotion of a design guide for healthy and active infrastructure.
Award winners will be announced at a Gala Dinner in Brisbane as part of the Australian Bicycle Summit on May 12, an event that brings together industry leaders, national advocacy organisations and government decision makers.
Nominations are open to any individual, group, business, event, organisation or school that has achieved significant change and inspired or influenced others.
