Special Categories

Special Categories give you the opportunity to focus your research on one of the topics below.  The special categories are sponsored by different organisations and institutions from across Australia. National winners of the NHC get to visit some of these organisations as part of the National prize – a trip to Australia’s National Capital, Canberra.

*Please remember that you still need to incorporate the theme “SIGNIFICANCE: History matters” in your Special Category entry.
