Help us celebrate the initiatives that make a difference to our world and the young people that lead them.

Each year, the Foundation for Young Australians recognise and celebrate the genuine impact young people have made to the biggest social and economic challenges of our time. The annual Unleashed Awards honour their incredible contribution to our world with a night of music, celebration, and speakers at Australia’s premier social change awards for young people.

Nominate Now

FYA’s annual Unleashed Awards recognise the initiatives that make a difference to our world and the young changemakers who lead them. Projects that are addressing some of the biggest social and economic challenges of our time — whether it’s in the local community, across Australia or abroad.  

Whether you’re within the FYA community, participating in $20 Boss, Innovation Nation, WOW, Impact or Young Social Pioneers, or if you’re a legend we haven’t met yet, we want YOU!

The Award winners will be announced at a ceremony in Melbourne in October. Not based in Melbourne? Not a problem. All finalists will be flown to the ceremony for maximum high-fives and celebrations.
