Notes for Nominators

To assist the Selection Panel in making a sound decision the Nominator should:

  • Address the criteria under each Section on the Nomination form;
  • Detail the Candidate’s significant contribution and influence on the history of Western Australian agriculture, primary production and/or rural life in their local and wider Western Australian communities;
  • Provide supplementary materials (newspaper articles etc.) with the application;
  • Submit Nomination to the Selection Panel by due date.

Please give as much detail as possible, but limit the nomination to 8 to 10 pages. This does not include supplementary material.

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.
