Royal Historical Society of Victoria (RHSV) has launched the Victorian Community History Awards ahead of History Month in October.

These awards are for Victorian history projects which came to fruition between 1 July 2022 and 30 June 2023. Your project might be a film, a podcast, a stage show, a book, an index, an oral history project, an exhibition etc – whatever the medium, it just has to be about an aspect of Victoria’s history.

The Victorian Community History Awards recognise excellence and originality in historical storytelling. The range of award categories reflects the variety of formats that can be used to enrich the lives of Victorians through history.

Entries can be submitted through the RHSV website. An awards ceremony is anticipated for early 2024.

There are a number of different categories, including The Local History Project Award ($2,000), which recognises the best activity by an individual or group to enhance awareness of records of significance to local communities, including but not limited to digitising, indexing, and original research.

See the RHSV website for more details.

Applications close 5pm Friday 13 October 2023.
