GECC Hall of Fame
As the beating heart of Gladstone events and entertainment, Gladstone Entertainment Convention Centre knows how much arts and culture enrich our community.
Our thriving arts community would not be possible without the people and organisations who devote their time, talent and energy. What would we do without their unwavering passion?
To recognise and honour these significant impacts and achievements, we established the GECC Hall of Fame. Since 2017, we have selected one person or organisation from the Gladstone Region to become a Hall of Fame inductee.
Do you know someone who has made a significant contribution to arts and culture in the Gladstone Region? Every January, nominations for potential inductees are open. Members of the Gladstone community are invited to submit their nominations using the official form made available in January.
Nominations are reviewed by an anonymous panel of assessors bought together by the GECC. This panel includes staff, volunteers, and previous inductees. Assessors are required to declare any conflicts of interest once nominations are received and prior to voting. The Hall of Fame inductee is decided by the majority vote.
Nominations are assessed via criteria that is pre-determined and released at the time nominations open. The criteria must include but is not limited to the following:
- the inductee must have made a proven significant impact on performing arts in
- the Gladstone Region
- the inductee should have spent considerable time in the Gladstone Region
- the inductee should have high standing in the community
- length of service in the industry.
Once the Hall of Fame inductee has been chosen, a Hall of Fame Star is placed on the GECC Hall of Fame wall. This celebration follows the GECC’s musical production (Combined Schools Musical or Community Musical).
Please note: GECC reserves the right not to induct any nominees into the Hall of Fame should no nominations be received or deemed suitable.
