About the Fremantle Local History Awards
Nominations for the local history awards are open biennially to recognise historiographical contributions in the form of published and unpublished works including photographs, pictorial works, drawings, maps, audio or audio visual material, that focus on the diverse social and cultural heritage of Fremantle and the Town of East Fremantle.
This event celebrates the valuable contributions made to Fremantle’s story and those individuals working hard to present and preserve them. Each submission is viewed by three independent judges with a first place prize of $500 available to the winner in each of the three categories.
