The Arc Awards encourage, recognise, and celebrate achievements of the many people and organisations who undertake exceptional work to reduce the harm and impact of alcohol and other drugs in Australia. They are the successor of the prestigious National Drug and Alcohol Awards that have been held annually since 2004.
The Award co-ordinating partners, the Australian Drug Foundation, the Ted Noffs Foundation, and the Australian National Council on Drugs, have taken an innovative approach to re-vamping the Awards to ensure that the event is both relevant and accessible to all people, including those working anywhere in Australia. The awards will also have new categories to reflect the National Drug Strategy and its 30 year history based on addressing the three principles of supply, demand and harm reduction. From 2015 onwards, the ceremony will be held during the day and will be webcast.
Nominate yourself, a colleague or even someone you don't know personally – anyone who you feel has made an outstanding contribution to reducing the harmful effects of alcohol and other drugs in Australian society.
