The Vincent Local History Awards encourage community participation in recording the history of the City of Vincent.

Submit written and photographic entries on subjects such as:

  • People or groups in Vincent (individuals, families, local artists, businesses, community groups or sporting clubs, schools and religious or charitable groups);
  • Places in Vincent (histories of houses and buildings, streets, lanes, parks, trees or landmarks);
  • Events (historic or contemporary) in the Vincent area. This year, we are also encouraging entries documenting the impact of COVID-19 on local people and communities in Vincent.
