On 26 November 2016 Peter Wadds Jeffery won the NEMBC NATIONAL ETHNIC and MULTICULTURAL BROADCASTING COMMITTEE award for OUTSTANDING VOLUNTEER OF THE YEAR AWARD in Sydney.

6EBA nominated Peter for the award as he is now 81 and has produced WORLD OF ART over some 12 years and out of a potential pool of some 70 stations and programmes, he reached the shortlist of three and then went on to winning the award. He believes that though the prize is for an individual that no-one in the media game can win such an award without station backing and the hard work and active support of a gifted team, and rather than let the plaque rest on his mantel piece at home it should join the other trophies and commendations in the foyer of 6EBA to reflect and inspire the fact that the station with its many programmes relies basically on a huge volunteer force."
