Oral historians based in Victoria are encouraged to apply for one of two annual awards judged by Oral History Victoria (OHV). The 2016 Awards - for community innovation and for education innovation - are now open for entry.
To be eligible projects must have been active (in creation and / or production) in 2015 and / or 2016. Applicants must be based in Victoria, though the project may involve oral history work interstate or overseas. Applicants need not be members of OHV, though they will be added to the OHV mail list and encouraged to join. Members of the OHV committee may not apply.
Each award winner will receive a prize of $250, and all shortlisted projects will be posted on the OHV website. The judging panel may award joint prizes and/or Commendations for Excellence to outstanding runners-up. Shortlisted applicants will be invited to make a short presentation about their project at the OHV annual general meeting on Thursday 27 October.
