Australia's newest Australian of the Year award recipients announced ahead of Australia Day have become the first to receive the new glass trophies designed by staff and students from the ANU School of Art and Design's glassworks studio.
Music played during the televised Australia Day national ceremony was also produced by students and staff at the ANU School of Music.
The musical piece was composed by the head of the ANU School of Music, Professor Ken Lampl, and performed by ANU students.
"I wanted to compose something that would capture the profound honour of the award and inspire leadership in a way that was uniquely Australian," Professor Lampl said.
Both the trophies and the music were produced in partnership with the National Australia Day Council (NADC).
