The 2022 OQ Perpetual Trophy for Services to Coaching was presented to Marion Burrill for her work with younger orienteers, in particular the coaching and organization of the Mini Cyclones Camp since 2017. Marion is an active and enthusiastic supporter of junior orienteering in Queensland

The 2022 OQ President's Award went to Brenton Gray for his enthusiasm in organizing the National Orienteering League Carnival at the Gold Coast in April 2022 (6 events in 4 days), and for constant scouting for suitable areas for new maps, often involving significant travel and effort.
