It was wonderful to zoom in on the Australian Museums and Galleries Association Victorian branch awards recently and see our 2020 project to commemorate the 75th anniversary since the end of World War II appear on the shortlisted screen with 3 other amazing projects. Our project was entered in the volunteer museum section, which was won  by Her Place Women's Museum Australia for 'Unmasked' exhibition. Congratulations to all involved in our project: At home and at war – Phillip Island, and all involved with the other projects which nominated and were shortlisted. 2020 was a difficult year in which to do historical, museum projects, so it is quite an achievement to get a project to nomination standard let alone be shortlisted for a state award!I
