Bauer Media this week announced it will recognise Australia’s most courageous children when the revamped and expanded Bravest Kids Awards returns in 2017.
As part of a major overhaul, the former Take 5 Brave Kids Awards are being relaunched and will harness the power of Bauer Media’s portfolio of magazine and digital brands including Now To Love, The Australian Women’s Weekly, Woman’s Day, Take 5 and Yours.
Each of the four brands will recognise a young Australian who has shown outstanding courage, such as young carers, local heroes, sporting champions as well as those that have demonstrated inspiration and bravery.
Editors from each of the four brands – Kim Doherty at The Australian Women’s Weekly, Fiona Connolly at Woman’s Day, Paul Merrill at Take 5 and Lisa Sinclair at Yours – will decide the most deserving winners who will be featured across Bauer’s digital destination for women, Now To Love, via social channels and in magazine.
Jayne Ferguson, general manager of women’s lifestyle and entertainment at Bauer Media, said: “After a hugely successful 10-year run in Take 5 magazine we have decided to broaden the reach of Bravest Kids to recognise, celebrate and reward the most inspiring young Australians.”
The competition will open for nominations in the second half of the year.
