The Victorian Multicultural Commission (VMC) wishes to acknowledge an outstanding individual or group whose community project has brought together different cultural or religious groups to promote harmony and cross-cultural understanding.

The prestigious Premier’s Award for Community Harmony recognises ordinary Victorians for their extraordinary efforts in promoting and supporting harmony and understanding across multicultural and multi-faith communities in Victoria.

Award recipients are presented with the unique opportunity to raise awareness of their work to Victorian Multicultural Commission networks and the broader Victorian community.
