Our annual gala event allows us to come together and celebrate the contributions of all nominees, sharing their stories, and giving them the public recognition they deserve.

The Crescent Awards are proud to give a voice to these stories and to shine a light on the extraordinary service and contribution of these remarkable people.

The Crescent Awards Dinner will be held at Alencia, located in Dandenong South. The Marquee Ballroom presents contemporary architecture and a spacious interior that will serve as the perfect backdrop for the Crescent Awards ceremony and three course halal dinner.

Judging Criteria

Each year, the Crescent Awards showcases and acknowledges the incredible contributions of Muslim students, schools, and educators across Australia. 

With awards for individual learners and educators, as well educational teams, the Crescent Awards aim to recognise: 



Acts of community service and contribution made by Muslim students.



Excellence in teaching and leadership within schools and communities



Outstanding design in curriculum, pedagogy, and learning environments



Advances in contemporary Australian Islamic school renewal and innovation

Learners and educators are nominated from across the country, and Crescent Foundation is proud to support the awards, which shine a spotlight on the extraordinary service and contribution of every single nominee.

A night to remember.

Last year’s event, held at Waterview in Sydney’s Homebush Bay, was an opportunity to showcase and celebrate some of Australia’s most influential teachers and most accomplished students.
