ALIA NT Recognition Award

2022 Awards

The ALIA NT Recognition Awards are an annual merit prize which celebrates and recognizes the work of a team or individual working in any sector of the library and information profession in the Northern Territory. There are two awards reflecting the unique geography of the Territory:

  • Urban Libraries Merit Award: Any library service located in a local government area servicing a population of 20,000 or above
  • Regional & Remote Libraries Merit Award: Any library service located in a local government area servicing a population of 19,999 or less.

Entries are now open for the 2022 Awards. If you, your team or someone that you know is doing great things in library and information services please nominate them using this form.

Nomination form

Entries close on 3 October 2022, and the Awards will be presented at a ceremony in Darwin on 7 November 2022.


This is a great opportunity to recognise the work of people in the library and information services in the NT, so get those nominations in.
