Your award-winning AG
WE LOVE GIVING OUT awards here at Australian Geographic. It’s the highlight of our year when, at the annual AG awards gala, we get to honour the adventurers and conservationists who motivate and delight us. This always inspiring event was made even more special last October in Sydney by the attendance of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle (see Your Society, page 30).
We were especially thrilled and honoured when we found ourselves on the receiving end of an award at the prestigious Australian Magazine Awards in November. It’s the third time in succession that Australian Geographic has been named Specialist Magazine Brand of the Year. The honour doesn’t just acknowledge the excellence of the Australian Geographic journal, but of a whole raft of other related activities we’re also engaged in.
That includes our annual awards gala dinner, website and social media, books and educational publications and numerous other efforts including our speakers’ bureau, AG Presents, which we launched last year. In 2019, through this exciting new initiative, we are taking the AG Awards out of Sydney and on the road, holding speaking events right around the country. With the invaluable support of partners such as Coral Expeditions, we’ll visit regional towns and cities in the company of many of our adventure and conservation heroes from past awards, who will give illustrated presentations and engage in interactive Q&A sessions. Further information on venues and presenters will be available in the next issue, in March, and through our website and weekly email newsletter. To make sure you don’t miss out, sign up for the newsletter via our website, australiangeographic.com.au
We look forward to meeting you, our readers, right around the nation and providing an opportunity for our wonderful awardees to share their inspiring stories in full and in person.
See you there!
