IGA Applications Opening in December 2020

We are excited to announce that our 2021 Indigenous Governance Awards applications will be open on the 2nd of December.

The awards share and promote success from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and organisations around Australia.

There are three categories of Award for outstanding examples of governance in Indigenous-led organisations:

  • Projects or unincorporated initiatives or projects
  • Small to medium incorporated organisations
  • Large incorporated organisations


Reconciliation Australia and the BHP Foundation have proudly partnered to deliver the Indigenous Governance Awards since their inception in 2005.

In 2018 we welcomed the Australian Indigenous Governance Institute (AIGI) as co-host and we continue to work together around Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander governance and success.
