Multicultural awards to recognise extraordinary Victorians

The Victorian Government and the Victorian Multicultural Commission is gearing up to honour people and organisations that have strengthened the state’s multiculturalism.

Minister for Multicultural Affairs Ros Spence today opened nominations for the Victorian Multicultural Awards for Excellence, which pay tribute to champions of diversity and others who have supported Victorians from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.

The annual awards will look different in 2020 – not just due to the pandemic – but also because they will feature seven new categories reflecting the many fields in which diversity is being embraced.
