Last chance to nominate for the Philips Community Sports Dad of the Year award

August 13, 2013

Sydney, Australia – Only a few more days are left to submit your nomination for a dad you think deserves to be crowned as the Philips Community Sports Dad of the Year. The nominations will be closing midnight on 25th August 2013 with the winner being announced on 1 September 2013 on the Philips Sports Dad of the Year official website. 


Whether it's a dad that coaches his local junior team, helps the local sports club with funding or support, or even plays competitive sport on the weekend, the Philips Community Sports Dad of the Year is looking to recognise fathers in local communities who have been making a positive impact through their involvement in local sport.


In its fifth year, the Philips Sports Dad of the Year understands the challenges that can come with juggling fatherhood and sport and has recognised professional sportsmen who are a great example on and off the field. This year is the first time, however, when local community nominations are also being encouraged along with some big names in Australian national sport.


To nominate for the Philips Community Sports Dad of the Year, please visit and let us know in 100 words or less why you think your chosen dad deserves to win this year. There is a chance to win some great Philips male grooming prizes for dad on Father’s Day simply by nominating. The Philips Community Sports Dad of the Year winner will also be provided with a $5000 Rebel Sports voucher to donate to his sporting club of choice for some new gear or sporting equipment.
