The Alumni Awards recognise innovation, creativity, exceptional leadership and those who inspire others through their local, national and international achievements.

Organised annually by the Alumni Advisory Committee, the 40th Alumni Awards will celebrate and showcase the quality and diversity of those who have studied at UON and have achieved outstanding success in their chosen fields.

The Awards recognise alumni across nine categories including professional excellence, cultural life, community services, regional, national and international leadership, Indigenous and young alumni.

Recipients will be announced at a gala event on Friday 23 October, which promises to be a highlight of the University's 50th anniversary celebrations.

This year the gala event will move to a larger venue, the University's own Great Hall, and will be hosted by Australian actor, writer, radio presenter, comedian and proud UON graduate, John Doyle. 

The Alumni Awards are a sell-out event each year and tickets are now available for purchase. For information about the Alumni Awards and to read more about the finalists visit www.newcastle.edu.au/alumni-awards
