Finalists for the Consumer Protection Awards 2014 have been announced ahead of the 10th annual ceremony to recognise and celebrate community, local government and media contributions to consumer protection in Western Australia.
The judges carefully considered submissions from 22 nominees to come up with this shortlist:
Rona Okely Award (for individuals)
Richard (Dick) Fletcher Award (for organisations)
Kidsafe WA Award (any contributor to advancement of injury prevention for children)
Media Award (for journalists and media outlets)
Commissioner for Consumer Protection Anne Driscoll is eagerly anticipating the presentation on 21 March 2014.
She said: “I’d like to congratulate all of the finalists – it really is an accolade to get to this stage considering the calibre of the nominations. It is a milestone as we mark ten years of the Awards. I am very much looking forward to us once again acknowledging the outstanding efforts of consumer advocates.”
The Commissioner added that there is something new for this year.
“The Media Award is to be renamed the Ruby Hutchison Media Award in honour of the first woman elected to WA’s Legislative Council, who was key to establishing the Australian Consumer’s Association.”
Winners in each category will be announced to coincide with the Award’s lunch to be held on 21 March 2014.
