Nominations are now open for the Victorian African Community Awards (VACA) 2014 ( from 1 August 2014 to 1 October 2014). The awards night will take place on Saturday 25 October 2014.
VACA seeks to highlight the varioius contributions of African-Australians in the state of Victoria. The awards also seek to showcase positive achievements within African-Australian communities and provide role models for the youth.
This year the focus is on professional excellence, as many more Africans are holding professional jobs and making a significant contribution to the economy of the state of Victoria and the broader Australian society through professional occupations. VACA 2014 is also linked to a mentorship and networking program to help young people and junior professionals to do better in their career.
Everyone is invited to nominate people in the community who are making a difference in the lives of others or those who are doing well or have achieved great success in their professional/career journey. A cross-community panel convene in early October 2014 to assess the nominations and vote on the awards.
