The first 12 - our 2018 Hall of Fame inductees
Congratulations to the first 12 - our inductees into the Pipe Bands Australia Hall of Fame for2018.
The Hall of Fame has been introduced to recognise outstanding achievement and contribution to the pipe band movement in Australia throughout its history.
Nominations for the awards closed in January and a four-member panel drawn from national councillors has been reviewing and assessing nominations for selection of the first 12 recipients of awards for promotion and advancement of the movement, education and training and performance. Panel members have remarked that many nominees met criteria for all three categories and some have been selected for multiple awards.
The first 12 to be inducted into the Pipe Bands Australia Hall of Fame have been drawn from the three categories with all award recipients perpetually eligible for elevation to the Hall of Fame in future years. Under the award structure guidelines adopted by national council last September, a maximum of two new members will be inducted into the Hall of Fame in each future two-year period.
