Awards and Partnerships
The Heritage Council of Victoria is required, among other statutory responsibilities outlined in the Heritage Act 2017, to “promote public understanding of the State’s cultural heritage and develop and conduct community information and education programs.”
We do this in a number of ways, including through partnerships with key organisations, events, and awards programs.
Heritage Council Community Awards
The Heritage Council of Victoria recognises community organisations and individuals that have made outstanding contributions to the preservation of the heritage of the State.
The Heritage Council of Victoria is the sponsor of the House in a Heritage Context category of the annual national Houses Awards.
Victorian Architecture Awards
The Heritage Council of Victoria sponsors the John George Knight Award for Heritage Architecture at the annual Victorian Architecture Awards.
Open House Melbourne
This annual event gives you the chance to take a look inside over 100 buildings important to Melbourne’s history.
