Event description

About the Crescent Awards

The Crescent Awards showcase and acknowledge the incredible contributions of Muslim students and educators across Australia.

Inspired by the words of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) as narrated by Abu Hurairah, “Those who do not thank people, do not thank God,” the Crescent Awards offer an opportunity to celebrate and thank those who give so much across our educational institutions and communities.

Every year, students from around the country are nominated across categories including excellence in community, entrepreneurial, creative arts, and sporting achievement. Educators are nominated for their roles in fields such as student well-being, professional development, innovation in teaching and distinction in leadership.

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. There is free parking on-site and a prayer room.

The Crescent Awards Ceremony and Dinner will be hosted by Iman Balla.
