Nominations Open for ACAA Awards: 2012
Nominations have opened for the 2012 ACAA/IELTS Australia China Alumni Association Awards.
Nominations opened on May 21, and will close on Wednesday, July 18.
This annual event showcases the extraordinary achievements of Australian university alumni now working in China. Previous winners and finalists include UNSW graduates Dr Zhengrong Shi, Founder, Chairman and CEO of Suntech Power, Vincent Lam, Founder and Chairman of ASIARAY Group, University of Sydney alumnus, Chinapod’s Jenny Zhu, and the University of South Australia’s Luqiang Qiao, Director of International Arts Cooperation with China’s National Center for the Performing Arts.
ACAA members are linked through their mutual study experiences in Australia, but the range and scope of work Australian alumni engage in upon their return to China couldn’t be more diverse – ranging across an array of sectors, including the arts, science and research, media, auto, green tech, financial services, education, IT, auto and property… the list goes on.
Winners will be announced in Shanghai at an ACAA awards ceremony on Saturday, September 15. ■
