Nominations are now open for the 2021 Jan Pentland Prize.

Written on the 24 March 2021 by ACA

You can nominate anyone who you'd like to recognise for their inspirational work. They might be a quiet achiever, an outspoken advocate, or perhaps an impressive newcomer. Or you might want to nominate a team or group of people who have gone above and beyond in their work as financial counsellors. A list of previous prize winners is available here.

The prize honours the life and work of a former Chair of Financial Counselling Australia and campaigner for social justice, Jan Pentland. The prize is for $1,000.

Nominations could focus on one specific activity or achievement, or on a contribution over an extended period, and should specifically address at least one of the following criteria:
  • Outstanding achievement in financial counselling and/or consumer advocacy.
  • Achievement in undertaking law reform, campaign work, community development, and/or community education.
  • The Committee considering the nominations also considers the extent to which nominees reflect the values of the sector as set out in the Australian Financial Counselling Code of Ethical Practice, including respect, professionalism and social justice.

Nominations close Monday March 29
