The time is fast approaching to the biggest event of the year - the Aurora Awards for Excellence. It is certainly a privilege just to be nominated, and with this nomination there are some extra responsibilities that are required of you on the day and night of the event. Below are a few items that require your consideration, so that you are able to get the most out of your experience as a Nominee.
When you were presented with Aurora nomination you received a presentation bag with a Nominee Handbook inside. This includes vital information about the process of being nominated, as well as information pertaining to attending the Aurora Awards, where you have the opportunity to win in your nominated category, and be presented on the evening as the Most Outstanding in your category for the year. General information about the function can be found on our events page.
Please make sure you are organised with how you are getting there on the day, and what time you will be required in the afternoon for your red carpet interviews. This information will be issued at the Aurora Nominee Rehearsal. Please note that car parking is available at the hotel at a discounted rate of $18.00 (normally $25.00) for MarShere Patrons only. You will be required to get your car park ticket validated by a MarShere coordinator or the hotel lobby before your exit to ensure you get the discount.

There is an Aurora Nominee Rehearsal that is compulsory for all Nominees to attend. This covers important information about your Red Carpet Interview and the process in the Red Carpet area on the day, as well as the back stage and staging process of your category's presentation up on stage in the evening. It is vital that if you can't attend, that a friend or family member attend the rehearsal so that they can tell you all of the information that is required. For this event to be a success, it is important that you know where you need to be, when you need to be there, and what you need to do. The last thing we want is for you to miss out being on the stage if you miss your category!
Your rehearsal time and location has been sent to you via email. If you have lost the email or not received it, please speak to your studio principal so that they can give you the information of your rehearsal time.
