NAIDOC Week celebrations are held across Australia each July to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. NAIDOC is celebrated not only in Indigenous communities, but by Australians from all walks of life. The week is a great opportunity to participate in a range of activities and to support your local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community.
Local community celebrations during NAIDOC Week are encouraged and often organised by communities, government agencies, local councils, schools and workplaces. The Australian Government is accepting funding submissions for local activities and events, held during NAIDOC Week 2016 (3-10 July), to celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories, cultures and achievements with your community.
The 2016 NAIDOC grant funding round is now open and will close 4.00pm (AEST) on Friday 29 April 2016.
Many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people contribute to Australian society through art, music, culture, sport, education and training, environmental preservation and community leadership.
If someone in your community deserves to be recognised for their contribution, then complete this form and address the selection criteria to nominate them for a 2016 National NAIDOC Award.
Entries for National NAIDOC Awards close on Monday 18 April 2016.

The 2016 National NAIDOC Poster Competition has now closed.
Good luck to all of the artists who have submitted their artwork.
The winning artwork will be used to create the 2016 National NAIDOC Poster to promote NAIDOC Week . The winning artwork will also collect a $5,000 cash prize.
There were loads of wonderful entries reflecting this year’s theme, Songlines: The living narrative of our nation, and can’t wait to see what is chosen for the National NAIDOC Poster this year.
