Preceeding and Succeeding[edit]

Could someone add to the Australian of the Year nominee articles those boxes saying who preceded and succeeded them? I'd do it, but I don't really feel like figuring out how.--220.238.233.226 15:42, 6 September 2005 (UTC)

Sponsors?[edit]

It would be nice to see a complete list of the corporate sponsors of this organization. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 124.169.237.170 (talk) 15:52, 2 July 2011 (UTC)

Please Expand (Apr 08)[edit]

I feel that for a topic of high importance, this is a short article. If anyone has done some research on the Australians of the Year, please contribute. A good reference site would be the official site at [1] (there is a link to this on the article page as well. Remember to cite as much information as possible, or it will be marked accordingly and people may not believe you. JJIG (t|c) 09:25, 3 April 2008 (UTC)

I put my hand up to significantly expand the article. It will take me a little while but am happy to have a stab.~~ —Preceding unsigned comment added by Galah66 (talkcontribs) 06:48, 12 August 2010 (UTC)
I have added a line space and tab to Galah66s' post for improved readability. 220.101 talk\Contribs 12:10, 19 August 2010 (UTC)

I think the article could do with a few more relevant images. I will try to reserach soem images. Comments? Galah66 (talk) 03:59, 5 May 2011 (UTC)
