The History Council of Victoria is the peak body for history in Victoria. Through its activities and website, it encourages the understanding, appreciation and enjoyment of history, and aims to raise the profile of history with decision-makers and the wider community.

Annually, the HCV hosts an historical fiction writing competition. Students can write about any period of history as long as the entry has a convincing setting that is historically correct in time and place. Winning students will each receive a cash prize of $150.00 and a certificate.
