Victorians are encouraged to honour the remarkable people and organisations that help make our state a multicultural success story.

Minister for Multicultural Affairs Ros Spence and Victorian Multicultural Commission Chairperson Viv Nguyen on Wednesday (14 July) announced that nominations are open for the Victorian Multicultural Awards for Excellence.

The annual awards, now in their 20th year, include 15 categories, covering issues such as community harmony, business, education and early childhood, local government, arts, health and emergency services, an official press release said.

The awards also include the community response and recovery category—introduced in 2020 to acknowledge the remarkable efforts of those who have assisted during the response to the pandemic.

Victorians can be nominated for either paid or voluntary work, and award recipients will be honoured in a ceremony hosted by the Victorian Multicultural Commission later in the year.

Spence said, “Multiculturalism is at the heart of the Victorian way of life. We are recognising those who make our state such a welcoming and wonderful place to live.

“I encourage Victorians to get involved by nominating someone who has made an outstanding contribution to our rich and diverse community.”
