South Australia is famous for its multicultural events and festivals. The Department of the Premier and Cabinet manages two major South Australian multicultural events.

Governor’s Multicultural Awards

The Governor’s Multicultural Awards recognise and celebrate South Australians who promote multiculturalism and increase the understanding of the benefits of cultural diversity in our community.

Held annually, the awards are administered by the Department of the Premier and Cabinet through Multicultural Affairs. They are presented by His Excellency, the Honourable Hieu Van Le AC, Governor of South Australia, on the advice of an independent judging panel.

Winners of the 2019 Governor’s Multicultural Awards were announced on 20 May 2020. Nominations for the 2020 Governor’s Multicultural Awards will open later this year.
