How to Nominate



Nominations are now open for items to be inscribed on the 2015 Australian Memory of the World Register. Nominations close on 30 June 2014. Successful nominations will be announced publicly in March 2015. Please use the Contact Form to start a discussion on your nomination.


Any government, institution, organisation, group or individual may submit nominations for the Australian Memory of the World Register. However, priority will be given to nominations made by or through relevant heritage institutions and to Australian documentary heritage under threat. In addition, two or more governments, institutions, organisations, groups or individuals may put forward joint nominations where collections are divided among several owners or custodians. Such prior collaboration is strongly encouraged. The Australian Memory of the World Committee also reserves the right to initiate nominations itself.
