GQ (Australia) - - INSIDE GQ -

It’s funny to think back to when this all be­gan. It’s now 10 years since we cel­e­brated our in­au­gu­ral Men of the Year event, in as­so­ci­a­tion with Chivas Re­gal. What stands out is not just what a great tra­di­tion it started, but that peo­ple told me there was no way we could do it ev­ery year. We’d run out of peo­ple to cel­e­brate, they said. There just isn’t enough lo­cal tal­ent. Well, I’m proud to say that a full decade since I took to the podium and an­nounced those very first Men of the Year award win­ners, the pool of tal­ent in this great coun­try of ours is still yet to run dry. In fact, it’s deeper than ever be­fore. Wel­come to this very special edi­tion of GQ Aus­tralia, com­mem­o­rat­ing 10 golden years of the GQ Men of the Year Awards, in as­so­ci­a­tion with Chivas Re­gal. By the time you have this pearler of an is­sue in your hands, we’ll have handed out our awards. We’ll have toasted our win­ners with a glass or two of Chivas Re­gal – and some of us might have even re­cov­ered af­ter­wards, too. Dur­ing my time at the helm of GQ, our an­nual awards have grown to be the finest recog­ni­tion of male – and one fe­male – tal­ent from Aus­tralia and around the globe. While it’s never easy de­cid­ing who’s wor­thy of our high­est hon­our, we hope you’ll agree the in­di­vid­u­als fea­tured in this is­sue have had a truly re­mark­able 12 months. If you hap­pen to be one of our highly val­ued sub­scribers, the cover of the is­sue you’re hold­ing right now will fea­ture our Man of the Year, Mr Chris Hemsworth. For those who’ve picked up your copy at news­stands, you would have been faced with the de­ci­sion
