The Western Australian African Community Awards (WAACA Awards) recognise the positive contribution and impact of African-Australians in WA. The awards acknowledge young people, innovators, business leaders, community leaders and champions for their contributions to the African Australian community locally, state-wide and nationally. The Awards also reward outstanding community groups and organisations that support the state’s multicultural agendas.
During the Australia Africa Week, the Organisation of African Communities of WA will bring together a diverse range of individuals and stakeholders including African Australian community leaders, business leaders, young people, Australian elected government officials and visiting African government officials as a united front working together on issues that affect African Australians in WA.
The ceremony will take place at the Pan Pacific Perth and will attract more than 300 community members, service providers, government officials and various institutions including education and business.
WAACA Awards Theme
