Australian Crime and Violence Prevention Awards

ClosedAward Closed: 29th of June 2022 - 5:00 pm (Extended) Run By: Australian Institute of Criminology Further Information: https://www.aic.gov.au/about-us/awards-and-grants/australian-crime-and-violence-prevention-awards

The annual Australian Crime and Violence Prevention Awards (ACVPA) recognise and reward programs that reduce crime and violence in Australia. The awards encourage public initiatives, and assist governments in identifying and developing practical projects which will reduce violence and other types of crime in the community.

Any government agency, not-for-profit organisation or individual person making a significant contribution to a project in Australia can be nominated for an award. Projects may address specific groups such as rural and remote communities, women, children, youth, family, migrant, ethnic or Indigenous communities, or specific problems such as alcohol-related violence.

The Board’s decisions are based on:

  • the quality of the evidence presented to support the nomination
  • the project’s capacity or potential to prevent or reduce crime
  • how project success is measured
  • the ability for the project to be adapted for other geographic locations
  • how sustainable project outcomes are
  • how innovative the project is
  • whether the project raises community awareness of crime and violence
