Why celebrate African Australians?

As a result of this journey and the many wonderful achievements, it was imperative that we join hands as a community. To acknowledge outstanding members making great contributions to Queensland and to the services of people and organisations and the full support, participation of our members across these wonderful state. We have been able to achieve this through an awards ceremony held at state level annually and a national event every three years.

Queensland hosts the 2016 National Award

In the past two years (from 2014) this event has been hosted at Queensland Parliament House in a spectacular celebration organised by Celebration of African-Australians Inc. and Queensland African Communities Council (QACC). These events not only acknowledge hardworking individuals in our community but also motivate winners and build self-esteem of new and emerging talents.
