National Disability Awards
Recognising achievements within the disability sector
The National Disability Awards are the highlight of the Australian Government’s celebrations for International Day of People with Disability.
It honours and recognises the achievements of individuals and organisations in improving the lives of people with disability, and in helping to create a more inclusive and diverse Australian society.
From 2011 to 2013, Morris Walker delivered this prestigious annual initiative, and was reappointed in 2016 to manage the program for a further two years.
As well as the Prime Minister, guests include many senior Australian Government ministers, heads of Australian Government departments and agencies, as well as high-level stakeholders from the disability sector.
Our role encompasses everything from conceptualising each event’s lighting and theming, researching and recommending the MC, managing catering and event staging, writing and producing event collateral, developing audio-visual presentations, and managing photography, as well as ensuring we adhere rigorously to appropriate standards for access and accessibility.
Each year, we pride ourselves on developing an entertainment program designed to surprise and delight. In the past, this has included ABC presenter and comedienne Stella Young, United Nations recognised rock group Rudely Interrupted, Top 4 finalist from So you think you can dance Australia Demi Sorreno and her hip hop dance troupe, comedian, writer and producer Tim Ferguson, and X-Factor finalist and singer Emmanuel Kelly.
