Local History Awards

What are the awards?

We are unbelievably passionate about preserving Vincent’s rich history. So, we celebrate this with our annual Local History Awards, which plays an all-important role in recording and sharing Vincent life through the ages.

The Awards are open to everyone including non-residents, who wish to enter and share their history of life in Vincent, with the possibility of winning prize money for their contribution.

We invite you to enter photographs every year, and written entries in alternate years with the next year being 2018. So, begin writing your stories of life in Vincent in days gone by to enter into the Geoffrey Bolton Award. We would also love you to share the history of your house, local family history, research or publications.

All entries become part of the Local History Collection. Photos become part of the City’s Local History Collection, including the fantastic online Image Library.
