Recognition Program

The Play Australia Promoting the Value of Play Recognition Program has been developed to provide an opportunity to celebrate the work of people and projects that enhance the outdoor the play experience for children, families and communities across Australia.

It is our hope that

  • Members be recognised for innovation, creativity, best practice and successful projects, within their field of work, in a non-competitive environment throughout the country.  
  • We wish to showcase the work of people and projects from different contexts, environments and business endeavors with high and low budgets.
  • We also aim to showcase the diversity and scope of projects being undertaken by our members committed to the promotion and development of play throughout Australia, which otherwise would not be well known to those working outside the field.

So - we invite you to tell us about your project!

The Board will meet in June to finalise the first round of participants to be presented shortly afterwards. Stay tuned to this page for further details coming soon.

Please use the online format below to submit your project OR email us to find out more:
