When and where will the 2022 ANZCA and FPM College Ceremony be held?

The College Ceremony will be held on Saturday 30 April commencing at 6pm AWST in the Riverside Theatre at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre (PCEC). The College Ceremony is expected to finish at approximately 7.30pm AWST. New fellows will be required to be seated in their allocated seat no later than 5.40pm.

Am I eligible to present as a new fellow at the 2022 College Ceremony?

Fellows who have received their fellowship within the past two years are eligible to present at the College Ceremony.

It’s been more than two years since I received my fellowship. Can I still present in 2022?

If it is a little more than two years, please contact with the Events Team to discuss further as we would still love to see you present in Perth.

I was registered to present as a new fellow in 2021 at the Perth ENGAGE hub prior to the snap lockdown in Perth. Can I present in 2022?

Yes, new fellows who were registered to present at the Perth ENGAGE hub in 2021 can present either in-person or virtually at the 2022 College Ceremony.

Do I need to present in-person or can I present virtually?

Given the ongoing impacts of COVID-19, we understand not all new fellows may be able to present in-person, so new fellows will have the option to present either in-person at Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre (PCEC) or virtually. This will allow all new fellows to still be able to celebrate their success with friends, family, and peers.

What does presenting virtually involve?

New fellows presenting virtually are not required to attend the ceremony in-person and can simply sit back, relax and watch the livestream of the ceremony through the virtual event platform. During the ceremony the names of all new fellows presenting virtually will be announced. The ceremony will also be livestreamed via Facebook.

Do I need a gown to be presented at the College Ceremony?

Yes, it is a requirement of presentation that you wear a gown. There is a limited number of gowns available to hire upon registration, please register early to ensure you secure a gown. When registering, please select to hire a gown at this time. New fellows are unable to present unless they are wearing a gown. Please note new fellows presenting virtually do not require a gown.

My family/friends are unable to travel to Perth to attend the ceremony. Will they be able to watch the ceremony online?

We understand it is not possible for everyone to attend so we will be live streaming the College Ceremony via the Facebook Live platform so your family and friends can share in your special moment from wherever they are in the world. All you need to do is ensure that they follow the ANZCA Facebook page and keep an eye out for the live feed from 6pm AWST. The recording will be available on Facebook for a limited time after the ASM.
