This year the Pride of Australia Medal celebrates its 10th anniversary. As one of News Corporation Australia’s most important community endeavours, the Pride of Australia Medal plays a fundamental role as a vehicle to celebrate and acknowledge the remarkable contribution and achievements of members of the community, who act tirelessly without fear or favour.

The program recognises the extraordinary actions of ordinary Australians across ten categories – Outstanding Bravery, Care and Compassion, Courage, Community Spirit, Environment, Heroism, Fair Go, Inspiration, Young Leader and Child of Courage.

On Thursday, December 11, ten remarkable Pride of Australia medallists will be announced and honoured at the​ 2014​ ​News Corp Pride of Australia​ ​National​ ​Medal Ceremony. The ceremony will​ ​be​ ​broadcast by​ ​media partner​ ​Network ​T​en, at the prestigious Sydney Town Hall, and will recognise what is great about this country.
