phoneSensis is calling for people to nominate ‘Courageous Australians’ from their local community to feature on the cover of next year’s Yellow Pages® and White Pages® directory.

Under the theme of ‘Courageous Australians’, Sensis is searching for local people from Ballina, Casino, Coffs Harbour, Grafton, Lismore, Murwillumbah and surrounding areas who have gone above and beyond the call of duty to overcome adversity and to enhance the lives of people in their community.

“We’re calling for nominations of local people who are courageous and self-less individuals who have a real passion for giving back to their local communities,” Group Manager, White Pages, Jane Blackley said.

“From the nominations we receive, we will be selecting one to grace the cover of next year’s Yellow Pages® and White Pages® directory to recognise and celebrate their contribution to the local community.”

Ms Blackley said people nominated may have demonstrated courage in a variety of ways such as helping to build better community relationships, helping others in times of need, showing strong leadership, inspiring others or by protecting life and property in their local community.

To submit a nomination, describe in 200 words or less how the nominee has made a positive impact in your community. For more information on the Courageous Australians theme and criteria, visit www.about.sensis.com.au.

When submitting your nomination, be sure to include your contact details and those of your nominee. Shortlisted nominees will be contacted by Sensis or its agency, with the chosen cover subject announced in the new year.
