2023 Albury Awards Program

Albury Awards

Every year, our community is enriched by the outstanding contributions of its residents. These awards serve as a heartfelt tribute to those who have gone above and beyond, leaving an indelible mark on our city. From community champions and dedicated volunteers to innovative thinkers and compassionate leaders, the Albury Awards highlight the diverse tapestry of talent and dedication within our midst.

Each year we celebrate stories of resilience, dedication, and passion that define the recipients of the 2023 Albury Awards. These are individuals who have not only excelled in their respective fields but have also inspired others to dream bigger and reach higher. Their achievements remind us that, collectively, we can achieve greatness and shape the future of our amazing community.

This year, we have increased our categories to include Senior, Active, Environmental and Creative Citizen of the year, to truly encapsulate all the brilliant talent across our industries and demographics in our community.
