History Awards Shortlisting!

The Geelong Honours Them Project has been shortlisted for the 2021 Victorian Community History Awards.

Nominated for the Local History Project Award category which recognises the best activity to enhance awareness of records of significance to local communities, including but not limited to digitising, indexing and original research, and providing access to the wider community, Geelong Honours Them is now a contender for a category prize, judges’ special prize or possibly even the Victorian Premier’s History Award.

The 2021 nominees tell stories ranging from war and industry, to pandemics, sport and murder, and include biographies, articles, feature length documentaries and interactive digital experiences.

Final award winners will be announced online in October as part of History Month.
