And the winner is… Ita!
Ita Buttrose is the 2013 Australian of the Year.
The former editor of The Daily Telegraph, The Sunday Telegraph and founder of CLEO Magazine has found herself a unique and respected place in Australian culture in recent years. Particularly after the success of bio-drama series Paper Giants.
Buttrose is the National President of Alzheimers Australia and has used her national profile to advocate for positive causes, like HIV/AIDS awareness.
