The Victorian of the Year is an award given to the most outstanding Victorian in any given year.
This is not to be confused with the Victorian winner of the Australian of the Year awarded in Canberra by the Australia Day Council (as part of Australia Day celebrations).
The Victorian of the year is awarded in Melbourne by the Victoria Day Council (as part of Victoria Day celebrations) on Victoria Day - 1 July.
Often the same people are winners of both awards. However only the Victoria Day award is nominated and voted by Victorians.
Other awards in the same series include the Young Victorian of the Year, Organisation of the Year, Good Corporate Citizen of the Year and the Local Achiever.
