Victorian of the Year


Victorian of the Year

The Victorian of the Year is an award given to the most outstanding Victorian in any given year. The Victorian of the year is awarded in Melbourne by the Victoria Day Council as part of Victoria Day celebrations on Victoria Day, 1 July annually.

The Victorian of the Year should not be confused with the Victorian winner of the Australian of the Year, awarded in Canberra by the Australia Day Council as part of Australia Day celebrations on 26 January annually. Often the same people are winners of both awards. However, only the Victoria Day award is nominated and voted by Victorians.

Other awards in the same series include the Young Victorian of the Year, Organisation of the Year, Good Corporate Citizen of the Year, The Arts Award and the Local Achiever.

Victoria Day Awards


The Victoria Day Awards are made annually on 1 July, (Victoria Day). They are specifically to reward and encourage Victorians in the areas of community and public service. The awards can be made in the following categories:

1. The Victoria Day Award for Community and Public Service.

3. The Victoria Day Award for Community and Public Service by a Victorian Organisatin or Association.
4. The Victoria Day Award to a Good Corporate Citizen.
5. The Victoria Day Award for the Arts.
6. The Victoria Day Award for a Local Achiever.

The Awards are made by public nomination and selected by the Awards Committee and ratified by the Trustees of the Victoria Day Council. The award consists of a Murray Red Gum map of Victoria on a bronze stand with the name of recipient engraved.
