IGA Application Extended

Deadline Extended Applications now close Friday 9 April 2021 

It’s not too late to get your application in!

We want to hear your stories of how you are contributing to your communities, and the nation, by putting culture at the heart of your governance.

Since 2005, the IGA winners have shown that so much is possible when Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander develop innovative and robust systems of governance by putting culture at the heart of what they do.

By entering the 2021 Indigenous Governance Awards, Indigenous-led organisations, projects and initiatives from right across Australia have the chance to share in $90,000 prize money, as well as receiving corporate mentoring, feedback from an esteemed judging panel, and media and networking opportunities.


This year’s awards have been expanded to include a category for small to medium incorporated organisations.

The 2021 categories are:

  1. Projects or unincorporated initiatives
  2. Small to medium incorporated organisations (new category)
  3. Large incorporated organisations

As with previous years, an independent panel of judges will assess applicants based on innovation, effectiveness, self-determination, sustainability, and cultural legitimacy.


Also, as with previous years, the Indigenous Governance Awards are open to all previous applicants, except for previous winners or highly commended organisations.
