The annual Australian Crime and Violence Prevention Awards (ACVPA) recognise and reward good practice in the prevention or reduction of violence and other types of crime in Australia.
The awards encourage public initiatives, and assist governments in identifying and developing practical projects which will reduce violence and other types of crime in the community.
Any government agency, not-for-profit organisation or individual person making a significant contribution to a project in Australia can be nominated for an award.
Projects may address specific groups such as rural and remote communities, women, children, youth, family, migrant, ethnic or Indigenous communities, or specific problems such as alcohol-related violence.
Nominations are open to projects of all sizes, including smaller initiatives involving local community groups.
The project must have been fully operational prior to 1 February 2017.
Value of the Award
Winners will be presented with a commemorative plaque and/or a certificate at a national awards ceremony at Parliament House, Canberra. Monetary awards may also be granted at the discretion of the ACVPA Board.
Winners will be invited to attend the awards ceremony and may be offered financial assistance to help with travel costs.
