Nominations for the Pipe Bands Australia awards recognising outstanding contribution to performance, education and training and promotion of pipe bands are invited for consideration in the 2020 announcements.
Pipe Bands Australia introduced the awards with an initial 10 recipients in each category in 2018. Recipients in each category were also eligible for induction in the Hall of Fame. A maximum of two awards are now made in any two-year period.
The national awards honour contributions of members that have contributed at a high level or wide sphere of influence in the journey of the Australian pipe band movement throughout its rich history.
Recipients of the 2020 awards and the two new Hall of Fame inductees will be announced in the week of the Pipe Bands Australia Diamond Jubilee year Australian Championships to be hosted by the Maryborough Highland Society, Victoria, in April.
Nominations close on 31 December and the nomination form can be downloaded from our website http://www.pipebandsaustralia.com.au/outstanding-service
