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 were announced at an award ceremony at Government House on Tuesday 16 March 2021.

Nominations for the 2021 Governor’s Multicultural Awards will open later this year.
