The NAIDOC Awards recognise outstanding contributions made by Indigenous Australians to improve the lives of Indigenous people, promote Indigenous issues in the wider community and recognise First Nations excellence. The ceremony will also be streamed on ABC iview and simulcast on NITV.

Led by ABC Indigenous, the ABC will celebrate NAIDOC Week with special coverage across all platforms.

Aunty Lynette (Dr) Riley, Co-Chair, of the National NAIDOC Committee said: “For half a century, NAIDOC Week has been an opportunity to celebrate our achievements and stories in public forums and educate the wider community about the rich and diverse cultures of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. We look forward to teaming up with the ABC once again to provide all Australians with access to an array of entertaining and thought-provoking media content and education materials.”

Steven Satour, Co-Chair of the National NAIDOC Committee said: “National NAIDOC Week 2024 promises to be bigger and better than ever. This year’s theme will spark a celebration of the unyielding strength of our communities and create a platform to amplify our voices. That is why we are thrilled that the ABC is on board once again to deliver the NAIDOC Awards Ceremony and an exciting campaign of NAIDOC content into people’s homes across Australia.”

ABC Managing Director David Anderson said the ABC is honoured to return as the official partner of national NAIDOC celebrations in 2024.

“NAIDOC Week is a time of excitement, recognition and learning and a tremendous opportunity for all Australians to come together to celebrate and reflect on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history, culture and achievements,’’ he said.

“As the Official Broadcast and Education partner, we’re excited to work with the National NAIDOC committee to play a part in bringing important and inspiring Indigenous stories to audiences right around the country.”

In addition to the NAIDOC themed resource, teachers will have access to the range of resources from ABC Kids Listen, Behind the News and the education collection on ABC iview.

ABC’s Head of Indigenous, Kelrick Martin, said: “NAIDOC represents the very best of First Nations achievement, honoured by our own communities. We’re proud to be able to share the joy and glamour of the 2024 National NAIDOC Awards with all Australians live on ABC TV and provide schools and students with important resources to engage more deeply with these incredible stories of success.”

The ABC will release its full NAIDOC Week content schedule in coming weeks.
