Nominations are now open for the Queensland Father of the Year competition, an annual state-wide award to honour and celebrate the importance of fathers and father figures throughout our State.

Presented by SU QLD, the aim of the award is to recognise the significant role fathers play in their children’s’ wellbeing and development to raise awareness of the value of fathers in the family and the community.

There will be six regional finalists awarded in regional ceremonies held following the close of nominations, and the overall winner will be announced at a formal award ceremony on 2 September 2015 in the lead up to Father’s Day on 6 September 2015.

The 2015 winner and his family will win a Sea World Resort Holiday Package, with the person who nominated him winning an Apple iPad Mini, so there are plenty of reasons to nominate a deserving dad.

Nominations can be made via
