The inaugural Zimbabwe Achievers Awards (ZAA) Australia will take place on October 28 at the beautiful Hilton Hotel Adelaide.
Nominations have since opened and people have until July 31 to put forward names of Zimbabwean persons and businesses they believe are excelling and have potential to win various categories.
“We urge people to send in time their nominations of Zimbabweans living in Australia and to also purchase tickets as this a great opportunity to network and bring progressive Zimbabweans together. This inaugural event will be a unique opportunity for the many Zimbabweans in Australia to celebrate their own successes, said ZAA Australia country director, Shepherd Mutusva.
Australia has seen a growing number of Zimbabweans moving to settle there for various reasons, with some individuals having been in that country for decades and doing very well.
“As such, the Australian version is expected to be just as exciting as the editions we have held in UK, US and South Africa,”added Mutusva.
Meanwhile, ZAA International has announced that the USA edition will be held on November 11 at the Marriot Hotel, Dallas, while the South African edition is scheduled for December 2 with venue yet to be confirmed.
The Zimbabwe Achievers Awards is held in countries where there is a sizable community of nationals from the southern African country. The global event has become the epitome of excellence among Zimbabweans who have chosen to live outside their home country, like many other diaspora communities from across the globe.
