How it Works:

An independent panel of prominent Western Australians meets annually to review the nominations to select who will be inducted in the following year.

The Agricultural Hall of Fame induction ceremony is held at a function in April/May each year.

In the 12 months following the induction, portraits are painted of each inductee which are then unveiled in a separate ceremony after the next Induction function.

The portraits are displayed in David Buttfield House on Claremont Showground.
